True love is a bond that is hard to break, despite distance or time. Every relationship has its struggles, and when Peggy and Billy Harris quickly married before the start of World War II, they were ready to face any troubles that came their way.
Peggy could never be prepared for the devastation that the war would have on her marriage, though. Her entire world would be shattered to pieces when Billy disappeared without a trace. It took her a lifetime to put all of the pieces back together.
The Second World War Tore Countries And Lovers Apart
World War II was fought between 1939 and 1945, and its effects are still felt to this day. There were irreplaceable casualties within the Axis and Allied forces, and many soldiers didn’t make it home to give their lovers one last kiss.
Peggy Harris was one of the women that were left wondering why her husband didn’t make it home, but she was left with many more questions than answers. His disappearance became quite the mystery!
A Twist Of Fate Brought The Two Together
After graduating from high school, Peggy worked as a mechanic at the Atlus Air Force Base in Oklahoma. She was the only female mechanic working on the base, so she garnered a lot of attention. Billie’s father thought this independent young lady would be the perfect match for his son, and the rest became history.
Peggy and Billie stayed in constant contact through written letters, but it was only a matter of time before things got more serious.
