Thread Name: Second World War Anniversary
Subject: RE: Second World War Anniversary
Another good song from that war: Katyusha. (I gather that multiple rocket launchers are still named after her.)

I was not quite 2 when it began. I don't remember that, but by chance I remember Pearl Harbor Day, when I was 4. I pulled a plug out by the cord (not a good idea), and the cord came out of it & made a little fireball that burned my hand. My father put vaseline on it. My misbehavior disabled the radio the cord was attached to, so my parents did not hear of the Japanese attack until some friends called them on the phone.
