During this school year, I have been taking a journalism class. In part of it I had to do an interview with one of my relatives, and write a piece about that person's life. I chose to do a story on my grandpa who grew up during World War II.
World War II affected many people. For Gary DeFries, who resides in Breckenridge, Colo., a lot of things changed. DeFries, who was 5 when the war started, grew up in Kansas. His dad, who was a World War I veteran, was running a truck station, and selling farm implements. He also was running the family farm.
