Looking Back, 1939: Twelve Joined U.S. Navy at Rockford

From the October 8, 2014, MidWeek (DeKalb County, Illinois) "Looking Back."

October 11, 1939.

**"Twelve joined the Navy at the Rockford office on October 3.  It was the largest single quota ever to enlist at that office."  Getting ready for war.

**  "War bombs are deadly for the children of Europe, but automobiles are fatal enough for Illinois school children, the Illinois Road Builders Association declared."
