That's Life on September 7th: The Great War Returns

Tune in to That's Life on Thursday Sept 7th @ 1pm! The second talk in the series of "Lest We Forget" will cover the second six months of the war when we see the young draftees disbursed to training camps through out the nation. On the home front we see extensive activity by the Red Cross, YMCA, Schools and the newly formed ultra patriotic "Liberty Leagues".  "Enemy Aliens" now have to register with the government. Some Yolo boys are on the troop ship "Tuscania" that sinks in the Irish sea killing 210 men, and others finally make it "Over There". We also cover the very first causalities of the war and finally our first medal for bravery, the French "Croix de Guerre" is awarded to ambulance driver, volunteer Herbert Hope.

Sorry, folks.  This episode did not air in September, but instead will happen live on October 12th.  Same topic, same guest; just a different date. Sorry for the re-scheduling -- that sometimes happens.
