the light of the silvery moon

My memory of the moon landing is posing with my brother beside a portable television while my father snapped a picture of us watching fuzzy figures on the screen bounce around in low gravity. I was dressed in my ragtag play overalls with the torn left strap, while Ted sported a pair of those thick black-rimmed glasses that scream “uncool.” Dad was having trouble getting the shot and kept telling us to move closer to the screen. “Get in there nice and tight!” Eventually, Ted flung an arm around the set as I squeezed in next to him—a tableau that looked for all the world like a dumb kid spoiling a guy’s date with his TV. For Great Moments in Shaw Family History, it ranks somewhere in the lower middle, if…

she knew her when

In the August/September issue, we asked if anyone knew the drum majors on the cover. Nancy Bowlin of Snyder, Texas, sent this delightful response. I certainly know the majorette in the center, Sue Cox—my mother. That picture was taken 11 days before she and my father, Bob Beal, ran off to marry in 1941—she was 15, he was 17—and spend the rest of their lives together. After she married, my mother was allowed to stay in school, but she couldn’t be a majorette. The school did ask her back once to lead a parade when another girl couldn’t make it. She enjoyed every minute of it! Keep Reminisce coming every month! Subscribe today: REMINISCE.COM/EXTRASPECIAL • Kit homes• Our Heroes roll calls• TV dinners…

1944 time capsule

Despite decisive battles in the air, on land and at sea, two events signal the beginning of the end of World War II: D-Day, June 6, sees more than 160,000 Allied troops storming France’s Normandy coast to deliver a crushing blow to occupying Nazi forces; and in November, Washington state scientists create weapons-grade plutonium, leading to the atomic bombs dropped on Japan in 1945. President Franklin D. Roosevelt wins an unprecedented fourth term and radio’s Fibber McGee and Molly keep us in stitches. Meanwhile, girls delight in a new magazine—Seventeen. JAN. 11 President Roosevelt calls for an Economic Bill of Rights in his State of the Union speech. JAN. 15 An earthquake in San Juan, Argentina, kills an estimated 10,000 people and destroys 90% of the buildings. JAN. 18 Louis Armstrong and Billie Holiday are among…

admired bandleader vanishes

On Dec. 15, 1944, 40-yearold Big Band legend Glenn Miller boarded a small single-engine plane in Bedfordshire, England, bound for France to put on a concert for the troops who had liberated Paris. Invited by Lt. Col. Norman Francis Baessell, an important figure in the war effort, Miller accepted the offer of a lift even though he had a fear of flying. The fog was thick that morning, with the cloud ceiling dropping fast. Pilot John Morgan wasn’t certified to fly by instruments alone, but Baessell ordered him to take off anyway. The plane is believed to have been a UC-64A Norseman. Carburetors on the military’s single-engine crafts, including Norsemans, were notorious for icing up, causing planes to stall in flight, and temperatures hovered around freezing when the aircraft lifted off the…
