Buy More War Bond

So We'll Meet Again
Buy more WAR BONDS

This postcard was mailed from a soldier in January of 1944 from the Jefferson Barracks, Missouri.
He writes:
Dear Mary,
Right now, I'm taking advantage of the free mail - the advantage of being a soldier.  I'm at the Jefferson Barracks in the middle of being processed and I'll be released from here Friday to return to school.  So far I haven't heard from you, but then I've been gone since Monday.  Hope to hear from you soon. Same address as before.
Lots of love

Over the course of the war 85 million Americans purchased bonds totalling approximately $185 billion.
