Segment 15


Darold Rice stated “I grew up,” when asked by the interviewer how the war changed his life. He came back with a renewed interest to get in the printing trade and to invest himself fully in civilian life. When in the service, he met a soldier who had family that was also involved in the printing business, and when he returned stateside he got involved in lithography. Also, he says that he benefited seriously from the GI Bill and the 4% loan when his wife and he bought a house. Aside from renewing the desire to get back into the trade, his experience in the war did not influence his choice of profession. He also got to travel all over Europe and see incredible parts of the world.
