I can only imagine if a person was living in 1919 and read a report of the year 1819. The individual may say we are living in amazing times compared to 1819.

J found one thing somewhat amusing reading these posts, especially Danny Clifton's. Not in a funny way, but a rather ironic way. I'll be 48 this month, and it seems from what i've read Danny is older than that by a fair amount. My Grandfather was in the Navy in WW1. He passed away in '74 when I was two, so I never knew him. Sure would have liked to. From what Grandma and Dad used to tell me, I'm a lot like him. I've never met anyone else my age who had a Grandparent in WW1. Most of my age group, it seems, had grandparents in WW2. Grandpa was born in the late 1880;s, early 1890's. I'd have to look it up to say exactly. My Greatgranpa came here from Norway, if I remember the records research correctly in the early 1870's. An interesting history, but difficult to research.

Back in the 1930's my grandmother had 7 children of which only 3 lived to be adults. It was a tough life for some folks.

Very cool stuff. My Grandfather was born in 1900 and passed in '87. I can't imagine the changes he witnessed.

My DAD was in WW1. He celebrated his 17th birthday in France. He began his military career in 1912 at the age of 11. He was a stable boy in Pershing's army, chasing Pancho Villa on the Mexican border

My Grandmother was born in 1910 and passed in 2000. I remember back in the late 90's I was down visiting and we were watching the news. They were talking about some new computer virus that was launched and warning people about it. She turned to me and said, "How can people get a virus from using a computer?" I realized seeing change and understanding change are two totally different things.

I think the lack of respect for older generation today is not because young people need education. It is because they see how well old people live with their fifth wheelers, side by sides and $70,000 trucks they drive down to their vacation homes in Arizona, while the younger generation struggle to pay for the fun. I don't believe the older generation had it so good in 1919 and were probably struggling right along with the younger generation.

My Grandpa was born in 1890 was drafted into WW1 and fought in France in the AA division. Helped build the Alcan highway and so much more. Was a true outdoorsman and got me off to a good outdoors life. What I would give for one more day with him even if we just talked about 1919..

My grandpa was married in 1919, after coming back from WW 1.

I was lucky enough to live with him and grandma from when I wad about 3 until I got a place of my own when I was 19.

He would tell about the first car, boat motor, radio, tv and all sorts of firsts to arrive in town. Musta been a great period of time to see advancements in one's life.

My grandad was too young for WWI and 41 when pearl harbor was attacked. During WWII he worked for boeing here in KS. He and gramma both had brothers in WWII. I had at least one great uncle in WWI. Pete. He came home blind.

My dad said he left his belly button printed all across France. I believe he meant in the mud.

Henry told of smoking/burning the lice off their coats at night around the fire and surviving off turnips for much of the march.

Yup, a lot less BS and stress. Although the stress most of us have today is of our own making. After all, we could still live like it's 1919 except for inflation.

I do. My GG Grandpa was born in 1860 and got caught up in a brush fire he set to clear more land, died a week later, that was in 1953. I always thought that he lived in a great time. He never had a DL, his son my G Grandpa didn't either. He had mules, lived up in a holler and life never changed for him but he got to see things once in a while, like a car or a plane fly over. My G Grandpa was born in 1896 died in 1985, he lived just like his Dad, neither one ever left that holler all their lives except when he got busted moonshining and extradited to Frankfort, once.
