Vintage Postcards from the World War II Era

Many of our relatives, particularly those who were in the military during World War I and World War II, have old post cards that reflect society at the time. You could argue, of course, that the mere fact that wars were being fought during the periods referenced demonstrates that the world was never a kinder, gentler place, but the utter crudeness and lack of civility in discourse was certainly at a lower level back then.

My mother-in-law recently gave Melanie a stack of postcards that her brother (Melanie's uncle) sent while he was in the U.S. Army at the beginning of WWII.

Yeah, this is a bit off-topic, but a lot of people like seeing the old post cards.

Even during the busiest times of my life I have endeavored to maintain some form of model building activity. This site has been created to help me chronicle my journey through a lifelong involvement in model aviation, which all began in Mayo, MD. There is a lot of good information and there are lot of pictures throughout the website that you will probably find useful, and might even bring back some old memories from your own days of yore.
