Grandpa sold war-bonds to be accepted 1944.

Frederick Kiehl,
Maysville, MO

He was a 3rd generation German-American farmer in middle America. He had one son in Europe and another son in the Pacific. Missouri citizen since birth. Their neighbor, Mr. Orr, Said then come with me to sell war bonds and it’ll make a difference. It did make a difference. In this instance the “race” was only propaganda from the Nazi party. This tidbit of history is still repeated as we recount our family history.
