During every war in which the citizens of our state participated, there were those who went to war and those who stayed home. But staying home did not mean not supporting our troops. Those who stayed behind contributed to the defense of our country in their own special ways. Some worked in manufacturing plants producing armaments and ammunition, some continued to till the land and produce food for the troops. Children even participated by having newspaper and scrap metal drives. This episode looks at how our citizens participated in the war efforts of our nation "on the home front."
