Military Memories: 31 Writing Prompts to Celebrate Your Military Ancestors

Throughout the month of May, GeneaBloggers will be listing the Military Memories: 31 Writing Prompts to Celebrate Your Military Ancestors created by GeneaBloggers member and author Jennifer Holik.

May 17: Communication. During World War I and II, word traveled by mail, telegram, and on the battlefield, telephone. It took weeks before families were notified of wounds, Prisoner of War, Missing in Action or Killed in Action statuses. Today the communication is almost instantaneous because of cell phones and the internet. Write about communication during the war in which your soldier fought and compare that to today’s communication.
