Programs by local experts are great ways to acquire information. A favorite tip of mine is to take a topic and look at it differently–to write about a dfiferent aspect. One example is the talk, “The Home Front: Matawan During World War II” being held to commemorate the 70th anniversary of the end of World War II.
Traditionally, Veterans’ Day programs cover an individual soldier, a unit, or a particular battle or conflict. The focus of the presentation will be what “Total War” was like for those who were left behind in town when others went off to fight in distant parts of the world, to defend our way of life. All residents were involved in different ways.

And in the tradition of Armistice Day, later Veteran’s Day, at the 11th hour of the 11th month, the American Legion Matawan Post 176 and the Matawan Historical Society will hold a memorial service to honor veterans.

One event feeds the mind, the other the soul. As writer’s we need both.
To all who served on the frontlines, thank you for your service.
