American Red Cross Clubmobile and Soldiers

 We talk with Author Jean Healy about her historical novel The Beantown Girls. Based on true events the novel sheds light on a little known aspect of World War II- the Red Cross Clubmobiles. The mobile units brought small comforts of home to soldiers on European battlefields and were staffed by women volunteers.
