Nana's Memories

http://memorycollecting.blogspot.com/
Blogged about "Growing Up Together" and ask, if my uncle was born when Harry S.Truman was President of the
United States. How old is he now?
This got me to thinking about when I saw Harry S. Truman.
It was October 6 1945, I was 6 years old and my grandfather took me to see
The President of the United States. (It made a big impression on me for life and I love to  study the history of this country)
It was in Blytheville Arkansas- there was a big army base in Blytheville and he flew in
and made a visit/stopover on his way to Missouri. Living with the army base in Blytheville we were very patriotic to this Republic of the United States of America.

Did you know that Truman faced many challenges in domestic affairs? The disorderly postwar
reconversion of the economy of the United States was marked by confounded to win election in 1948, helped by his famous Whistle Stop Tour of rural America. After his election, he passed only one of the  proposals in his liberal
 Fair Deal program. He used executive orders to end racial discrimination in the armed forces and created loyalty checks that
dismissed thousands of communist supporters from office.

I thought what I read about him was interesting. I didn't know he was born in Lamar, Missouri which stood out to me as we are from Lamar, Arkansas. Sure wouldn't have wanted to be President during that era.
BTW..Sam turned 63 this month

I had guessed 65, I think when I saw Rita's post. How interesting that you saw him! I think my Mom did also but may have been a little older than 6. Not sure.
