Admiral King Visits Lorain's 1942 Home Front Celebration Part 2

On Friday, August 28, 1942 Lorain opened its special home front celebration. The Lorain Journal included a special War Review Section that examined the first three years of World War II. (The cover of this section is shown above; click on it for a closer look.)

Special newspaper ads welcomed home Admiral Ernest J. King, two of which are shown below. It's nice to see a hometown hero being celebrated and appreciated.
