Wow! As you will read below, a lot happened in this decade.  It was hard to choose just one event per year!  My dear grandmother passed away last month at 91 years.   She was one of the few young women in her small town to join the Navy and serve in World War II.  It is  amazing to me how much this generation did and how great they looked doing it!
