I love USA! My father Angelo, was held prisoner of war from 1943 to 1945, in Ogden, Utah. He worked in the fields of cotton. He was treated well.

Thank you for your interesting comment on my photo, Guiseppe. However, the area around Ogden Utah cannot grow cotton, as it is not warm enough there. Cotton in the US is grown in the southern states where it never snows and is always warm. Ogden is surrounded by high mountains and has cold winters. Many other types of crops are grown around Ogden, and it is especially famous for the fruit that is grown there. Perhaps your father worked in some other type of field.

My Daughter went to school in Firenze, and my husband and I visited her there. Italians are very friendly, and the country is very beautiful. I love Italy :)

Hello Eve! I think you are right on Ogden, I remember that my father told me that he was also in Florence in Arizona, maybe that is the place that has gathered cotton. Greetings from Roma, Bepix.
