    I think most, if not all of us, are aware of the American expression that became popular during WWII. Tonight, my grandson’s middle school put on the play and he was one of the cast. I have not enjoyed a young people’s play this much in a long, long time. The plot is simple, but yet interesting. The music was fantastic, sung solo, trios and with the entire cast. The jitterbug dance scenes would steal your heart. There was music in every scene and the costumes were of the period, some in uniform and the “riveter girls” were fantastic. This play has been done in the past by various groups including high schools and I believe it was a movie, years ago. After the last scene the cast and the audience sang America The Beautiful. Then they had a flag for each branch of service and asked any member of the audience, according to the branch of service in which they served, to stand. It was a pleasant evening to say the least.

    Thanks much. I had also read about James J. Kilroy.
