The other day an email arrived from a Korean War veteran who started off by saying, “I suppose someone else will get this, add me to your fan club and you will never hear a word of it. But here it goes anyway.”
He was writing to comment on how a column I had written on the Great Depression had affected my parents and how, in turn, they taught me the lessons they learned. Although, I do use a bank a whole lot more than my Daddy. When he was nine, he lost 50 cents when a bank closed and he never got over it. Daddy’s trust was hard to win and easy to lose. He dug holes and buried money and used a safe deposit box at the bank to keep enough money to see his family through a couple of years should the banks fail again and another Depression come lurking.
