Biography: 

Mrs. Res Grier - or "Maw," as the narrator calls her - does not want her son Pete to go to war, but accepts his decision to do so. Through her tears, she sends him off with mended and clean clothes and "a shoe box of vittles" (85). She also functions something as a family bridge between the World Wars, as her brother served in World War I, and her son is getting ready to serve in World War II.
