Stars and stripes

Recommended Posts

I have a question, a friend of mine found a Stars and Stripes Newspaper in a Cupboard here in Luxembourg and I borrowed it from him to scan it in, what I did.

 

My question is can I publish it here on this board maybe someone would like to read it?

Or should I sent it to you by mail Marion ??

Is this readable?

Either way is fine with me. If you have the capability to upload, go right ahead, I certainly won't mind. If you are having problems, then go ahead and mail it to me (my address is on the main site) and I will post it.

 

By the way, when I attended the 1108th reunion, they gave me about a dozen Stars and Stripes, but I have to be very careful with them because they are getting very brittle and falling apart at the edges. I have to preserve them and right now have them in an acid free box as are many of my WWII items.

I recently picked up 3 issues of Stars and Stripes from May, 1945 including the May 9th issue "It's Official Now!", announcing the end of the war in the ETO. There was also a supplement to this as well as an issue with info about Redeployment and "points", which I'm sure was the number one topic of conversation at the time (well....maybe #2, these were 19 year old men! :lol: )

I just love these things. A dear friend of mine whose family never threw anything away still has a ledger in her library where her parents recorded the purchase of war bonds in 1943.
