The first of several stories in a series looking at the "war brides" who came to the United States by the thousands at the end of World War II. Joyce Vashro, now of Helena, Montana, looks back on the tumultuous years when she and her fellow "Land Girls" (volunteer female farm workers) had whirlwind romances with men they knew they might not see again.
