Who are Baby Boomers?

Why is this generation so important to the modern world?

How do you define Baby Boomers? A population explosion occurred in the mid 20th Century, the years known as "the Baby Boom". It was a century that saw more change in a few decades than all of previous recorded history. The Boomers have been a huge part of that history and cultural revolution since the end of World War II.

Parents of Baby Boomers generation

Both of my parents served in the US Army Medical Corps during World War II. My Father was a Medical Doctor /Battlefield Surgeon in Europe, operating in a Mobile Army Surgical Hospital (MASH) across France and Germany. My Mother was an Army nurse in command of the Army hospital in Grand Island, Nebraska when the D-Day casualties were evacuated Stateside for treatment. They both experienced firsthand the suffering and horror of the war and dreamed of a time of peace when they could raise a family. They met three years after the War ended, married, and began a family.

Variations of my parents love story played out across the United States and other parts of the Western World after the War ended in 1945. By 1946 the Baby Boom was underway. A generation that had endured four years of terrible war and sacrifice devoted themselves to creating new life through their families.
