Steve Andriga discusses immigrant life in Lynch, Kentucky, from the 1920s through the 1950s. He recalls that the town was a good place to live because everyone was friendly. During World War Two, many of the miners, including Andriga, were drafted and did not return to work in the mines after the war. Because of an eye injury, he saw no front line duty. Upon returning to Lynch, he went back to work for United Mine Supply. He also describes the company commissary and the quality of education he received in Lynch.
