The War Is Costing Big Bucks, Nearly $8 Billion A Month
From the October 10, 2018, MidWest (DeKalb County, Illinois) "Looking Back."
1943, 75 Years Ago.
"Did you know that Sycamore is nearly $90,000 short of meeting its quota for the Third War Loan? Did you know that this bloody war is costing the United States practically $3,000 every time you watch a second tick?
"That means nearly 265 million dollars a day and nearly eight billion dollars a month. And remember that there are many hard, bitter months of war ahead of us yet before Germany and Japan are annihilated. It is true that Italy has thrown in the sponge, but that is just a mere drop in the pocket as to what must be accomplished by the Allies before the war is won."
