As you might expect, ambulances were an important part of the war effort. With their bright red crosses, they were not supposed to be targets for enemy bullets. However ...
the bullet holes in this window seem to indicate that this ambulance encountered its share of fire.
But even if the bullet holes are a reminder of the grim reality of war, the familiar cartoon character painted on the ambulance door leaves no doubt that the soldiers sought to find humor wherever they could, even on the blood-stained battlefields of war.
As we celebrate Memorial Day this week, I give thanks for the men and women who've served their country in the armed forces.
Welcome! I hope you'll join me for my Wednesday in Wyoming posts -- a chance to learn a little bit about the state I now call home. And, for more information about me and my books, please visit www.amandacabot.com.
