1942 · Germans Sink Ships Near St. Simons Island

Age 20

Lights from homes along the coast of St. Simons Island provided a clear view of the SS Oklahoma for German U-boat Captain Reinhard Hardegen on April 8, 1942. A German torpedo was fired at the SS Oklahoma shortly after midnight. An hour later, a second torpedo was fired at the oil tanker Esso Baton Rouge. Both ships sunk and the attacks left 22 seamen dead. After the incident, residents of the Golden Isles panicked over concern of a German Invasion of the coast and were stringently observant of a nighttime blackout.  
1944 · The G.I Bill

Age 22

The G.I. Bill was a law that provided a range of benefits for returning World War II veterans that were on active duty during the war and weren't dishonorably discharged. The goal was to provide rewards for all World War II veterans. The act avoided life insurance policy payouts because of political distress caused after the end of World War I. But the Benefits that were included were: Dedicated payments of tuition and living expenses to attend high school, college or vocational/technical school, low-cost mortgages, low-interest loans to start a business, as well as one year of unemployment compensation. By the mid-1950s, around 7.8 million veterans used the G.I. Bill education benefits.
