Along with the revival of “John Loves Mary,” a special Word War II Popular Culture presentation was given by Sally Parry and Bob McLaughlin. Their topic covered homecoming servicemen and their readjustment to non-military life. They also discussed how their wartime experiences changed both the service men and women and how they in turn changed society.
