Description: James Hodges thought that joining the Texas National Guard in 1936 would be a good way to help his family stay afloat during the Great Depression; but he had no idea that he would be able to help his country triumph over some of its greatest foes at the same time. When the Texas National Guard mobilized on November 25, 1940, Mr. Hodges had to leave his new wife and month-old baby to serve for one year. Shortly after he returned from his year of service, Japan bombed Pearl Harbor and the U.S. went to war.
