Cynthia Meerdink, my grandmother, far left, with other members of the girls society at First Reformed Church in Hull, Iowa, sewing a service banner for our church, during the Great War. It and the one for the Second World War were still hanging in the church when I was a young girl in the 1960s.
I urge you to spend some time reading stories at my sister's site Wartime Remembrances.
