Wartime Christmas Cards in DeKalb


From the November 28, 2018, MidWeek  (DeKalb County, Illinois) "Looking Back."

1943, 75 Years Ago.

"Christmas greeting cards are being brought to the DeKalb Post Office where they will be held for holiday delivery.

"An appeal was made a couple weeks ago that the greeting cards be  brought in as soon as possible and the response to date has been  most gratifying."

So, the post office had asked for everyone to bring in their Christmas cards early so they could be shipped out when available transportation found.
