Publisher Ed and Editor Amy Standifer owned and operated the Bastrop Advertiser newspaper for a remarkable 47 years. During World War II, they encouraged submissions of letters and photos from persons in military service as well as from families on the home front and printed military news plus press releases. This compilation of 727 articles about 390 men and 5 women in military service is a microcosm of WWII; 34 of the men lost their lives and 8 became prisoners of war. For readers more interested in WWII history than in personsa names, we have bold-faced all words in the text that tell military news and happenings.Boyd F.
