Response to From "Today in Military History"

The whole purpose of DDS was to allow for people to have extra 2 hours
of daylight daily. The whole purpose was to give people extra time
each day to work in victory gardens after their normal work day.
I remember people working in their gardens every evening. I was
11 years old when the war started and had to work in the garden
each day after school. It is time for us to finally do away with
Daylighht savings time.
