 “World War II went on for quite a while before the U.S. got into it… not until after Pearl Harbor was attacked. The war went on for a while longer before I got into it,” Mac said.  I can’t imagine his sweetheart Irene, the peace lover, or Gramma Mac supporting her only son going to war. In my mother’s boxes, I found a 1942 receipt for a gag dad sold to The New Yorker.  His dream of being a New Yorker cartoonist was accomplished. He may have looked up from his drawing table and realized he was the last young man in Chicago. Maybe enlisting gave him more control over his future than the newly imposed draft? The mighty maelstrom of destructive energy finally pulled in this only child, this boy with a peace-loving girlfriend.  At night, I transcribed his videotaped story for the skeletal structure of my father's story.
