Helen “Betty” Seymour was born in 1932. She has lived on the Eastern Shore her entire life. She has childhood memories of life during World War II. She tells us about what she doing on V.E. day and how she and her friends helped with the war effort as children.
When Helen "Betty" Seymour was a young girl, there were many things happening in her town to benefit the war effort. She and her friends would gather all the aluminum they could possibly get. They would go door to door, even saving the metal part of gum wrappers. On V-E day, she was on a ferry, heading into Baltimore, when she heard the good news.
