Yesterday, we remembered the men’s sacrifice on D-Day 75 years ago.
Today, I want to remember and celebrate the sacrifice of those who waited, prayed and worked back home to keep those men supplied throughout the war… especially the women…
Thousands of women took on the responsibilties of what had been ‘a man’s job’ to that point. They did long hours of work in war industries as well as keeping their responsibilities as mothers and daughters.
Many did this even after receiving notice of a loved one’s death or injury.
They not only contributed significantly to winning the war, it was a turning point for women in our country that showed their strength and abilities.
Well done to those who waited at home.
