During WWII, 16 million men and women answered the call to serve in the armed forces. They left behind wives, husbands, children, parents and siblings to support the homefront. In this episode of Nimitz Minitz, we focus on homemakers and all they did to hold their families and households together until their loved ones returned home. "Homemakers" led the effort to keep the homefront strong by managing their families' navigation of finances and rationing and even giving up their own groceries to send canned goods to the troops. Watch this Nimitz Minitz installment that pays tribute to all that WWII era homemakers.
