To everyone, whether at home or abroad, travelling, or - like this family - at work on this holiday, we at the SSS wish everyone a happy and safe Thanksgiving! This photo from the Library of Congress American Memory Collection was actually taken on Thanksgiving. From the LOC:
Thanksgiving, 1942. American workers give up the holiday to speed victory. The Blackwelder family celebrated Thanksgiving at their benches in a Glenn Martin Company plant. William P. Blackwelder works in the tool crib of the plane factory, and his wife and daughter are riveters. A son, Frank, in the Navy for one year, has been wounded four times. He has been awarded several medals.
This is wonderful day to wishes thank you.
