Several of the episodes of Heartsong Fit include short stories by my mom, Lucille Maris, about life in the US during the 1940s when World War 2 was underway. I have been interviewing her about how she dealt with the stresses of those times from finding housing, to scarcity of food and supplies to dealing with the deployment of her young husband (my dad).

This episode is an audio index of the locations of the stories in the podcast so that you can easily find them and listen. You will also hear a brief overview of the topic of each story.

The links mentioned are available in the show notes for the episode: heartsongfit.com

Margaret Williamson and Lucille Maris recount details of their memories of learning the news from President Theodore Roosevelt on Dec. 7, 1941 that the Japanese had bombed Pearl Harbor and the United States was entering the war.

These women discuss the atmosphere of the country during the early 1940s and what happened around them as men were enlisting in the service. Both Margaret and Lucille were married to pilots in the U.S. Army Air Corps.

This is a glimpse back 70+ years into the lives of these strong women who were married to valiant service men. They teach of the importance of independence, persevering and taking action.

Episode 6 of Heartsong Fit With Vickie Maris is a special tribute on the 70th anniversary of D-Day (WWII) to Lt. Col. James R. Maris and the men and women who fought for freedom in WWII. Lt. Col. Maris flew 30 missions in a B-24 bomber. His second mission was D-Day. You will hear his recounting of that day as read by his daughter Vickie. 

In this episode, she also reads the story of Mission 23 which she wrote in conjunction with her dad for a posting on the website for the 392nd bomb group. Vickie is now working on the completion of her dad's memoirs. She is interviewing her mom, Lucille Maris, in order to add the perspective of a stateside bride during WWII. You can hear some of Lucille's stories at the end of several of the episodes of Heartsong Fit.

To all those who have served or who are serving in the military for the U.S. and its allies, we salute you. God bless.
