Item description for Those First Two Years by Elaine Bonzelaar...
Overview Having inherited the box of letters that contain the truelife stories of the woes and hardships that accompany Military Draft, I have written Those First Two Years with the hope of preserving these sometimes serious but also humorous stories for future generations. The goal of togetherness in newly married life was often tested by the army orders and duties that faced us. Living through these trials caused us to seek faith and guidance from God. The sights and sounds of basic training come alive from the recruit's point of view, and later the army duties overseas bring into focus the field trips in the wilds of Germany. Making a home and providing encouragement when choices aren't an option, I have captured the hardships of coal stoves, no refrigerator, washing machine, or telephone. I believe that these stories will bring back memories for many older folks who now have time to enjoy books, as well as make younger readers aware of life during the 1960s. Having included both male and female perspectives, Those First Two Years will provide an awareness of history unfolding in a simple way in our country and also overseas. Woven throughout the book is a message of encouragement to all Christians that God is always our guide
