Buy a Bond Today to Honor Someone You Know in the Service It's Easy to Buy Bonds It's as easy to buy bonds as to buy shirts or socks. Go into any store or place that's an issuing agent. Pay your money — wait while the bond is typed out with your own name and address — and take the bond away with you. You pay $18.75 for a bond you cash in for $25 in 10 years — $37.50 for a $50 bond, $75 for a $100 bond, $750 for a $1000 bond. If you need your money before the bond matures you can get your money back with earned interest. Lend now for your future. Whose War IS This? This isn't the soldiers' and sailors' war. It's yours and mine. It's America — and all we stand for — that the Axis is fighting. That's you and me. We don't have to go to the front to fight-we can send our rroney. If we don't do that, we're coasting while others carry the fight at the front and at home. Everyone is either "motive power" or a drag on the war. Do all your share. In honor of a fighter you know — or know about — buy a bond today! If You POSSIBLY con . . . . you must buy a bond TODAY . . . else shame the collective heart of America, For today, all over the country, we all buy a bond in honor of a man or woman at war.

Oh, heroes of America, who are abroad in the earth today, Enmeshed in the hot an,d unreasoning machinery of war— We would not have you know how we cling to our dollars— Our cowardly, slacker dollars, while you die for us. Franklin, Jefferson, Hamilton, Hancock, Henry— "If a people hate war too much to risk ALL for freedom At the drop of a hat—freedom will be taken from them." Forefathers of America, who carried the fearful weight Of a rebellion and a whole nation on your shoulders— Who dared to face complete destruction- turn from the sight Of our swollen bank accounts, and our little ideas Of how few bonds pay the price of our rich inheritance, Lincoln.. .with the great rugged soul of you suffering— Risking the life of the Union to save it, Help us to be a credit to ourselves—and to our children.
