1940s WWII greeting cards for Soldiers


"'To my sweetheart in the army' ....that's nice.  Now have you one for a boy in the navy?" ~ 1942

this Birthday card for a Soldier has a woven "blanket" embellishment and it's illustrated on the cover and inside, as well as the backside.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY SOLDIER!  You's Ain't no BED of ROSES  (Who wants one -They GOT THORNS!  You Sure Can't JITTERBUG  All Night (Well, it's Better For YOUR CORNS!)

Your Grub Ain't exactly CAVIAR- (Who likes that FISHY Stuff?) ... And Your Sarg- He Ain't No ANGEL -(There's Some as Thinks He's TOUGH) ....But Soldier On Your Birthday ... Ain't We Glad That You was Born? ..... 'Cause Who but YOU could Look So Swell In A U.S. ........
UNIFORM!  We're MIGHTY PROUD of YOU!


















  This next Soldier Birthday card has a felt four leaf clover embellishment, as well as, a die cut center horseshoe ~note you can see the rust staining from the pin that holds the clover in place.


A Happy Birthday SOLDIER


No K.P. and no formations ~ Nothing you don't want to do ~  Just a Happy Birthday, Soldier, And the Best of Luck to You!


this mechanical card shows a soldier dreaming
 of his sweetheart while a puppy is licking his face 
...when opened he wakes up 
and his sweet dreams "POP" away ..
To My SWEETHEART in the SERVICE


I hope you always dream of me... Whenever you are nappin'~ For if you do, you can be sure That THIS will never happen!       LOVE AND BEST WISHES!

    I found some cards shooting Hitler and 2 other WWII leaders via cannon w/the phrase "You've been fired". Any interest?
