 THERE IS NO WAR ON BIRTHDAYS!



Oct 1939 issue of Rust Craft Rustler shows this then popular card,
here's part of the short article:
   A WAR CARD
 ...illustrated is a card that was rushed out and placed on the counters of many stores within a week after war was declared in Europe.  As you see, it reads on the outside,"There is No War on Birthdays, " but when opened up the word"WAR" becomes "WARM" in the expressed wish, "Warm and Hearty Birthday Greetings"

Greeting cards played an important part in WWII, 
boosting morale and keeping family and sweethearts connected.

Birthday wishes to 
You in the AIR FORCE
with real red, white and blue ribbon embellishment

To one of the guys... Who are keeping the enemy Out of the skies~

  Remembering and Honoring the brave hearts 
who laid down their lives for the nation.
