Then Clay you show your ignorance. It was the MAIN thing in the early 40’s. There was need, and the manpower for the war effort was great and every one who was able suited up. Young athletes, many enlisted and many more were drafted. Today most young people wouldn’t lift a finger for their country. Back then They were proud to do so.
