There are many records, stories and news articles here. I hope you will find it helpful in learning about these strong wonderful war brides.
This is the largest immigration of women to ever come to the U.S. They left their families and everything they knew behind for the love of a soldier. Many of these brides knew that they would never see family and friends again. These brides hoped for a better life, some had a wonderful life while many did not. Fear of never being able to see their children if they left plus the lack of money keep them here.

Please fill in my Questionnaire, mail it to me or keep it for your family, Do it today. Don't let your story die with you. Your story is important. I want to hear from you, please.
