I really liked this book. Although this true story takes place in my parent's generation rather than my own, I was definitely inspired to be more aware of the fact that a little bit done well can bring blessings to those around you who are in need. It was inspiring to read about how so many people in this small town pulled together to make a big difference and a lasting impression on thousands of American soldiers who passed through the area, coming and going to serve in the war. The citizens of North Platte should be proud of this accounting.
Great book. A piece of history that is heart warming. Great stories of people from small towns who supported the troups in WW II.
This was a lovely read about the support a single town gave to our soldiers in WWII. It gave a glimpse into the goodness within the human spirit and all that is good about the USA. Not a lieterary giant but a reall feel good book.
A very good book about an almost forgotten story. After reading it you will want to ask any WWII servicemen that you know if they were at the North Platte Canteen.
