career of the Army.

 

 

 

Examples of "V" (victory) mail
It was a service the government provided which served two purposes. 
It saved space (the actual size of the letters are 3" x 4"),
and the government could readily censor it.

The "V" (victory) mail was sent to Mrs. William Robbins when he was stationed in Paris.
