Florida Remembers WWII

Previous - U.S. military discharge insignia.  This is the cloth type sewn to a uniform to indicate honorable discharge. Home Next - Blackout light bulbs.  Dim-out and blackout restrictions forced coastal residents to reduce light levels due to German submarine threats. These lights, which complied with War Department standards, were part of the inventory of a Fort Lauderdale Beach drugstore.
United States Defense Savings booklet designed to hold five-dollar stamps. Designed as a less expensive alternative than buying $25 war bonds, the purchase of these stamps also supported the war effort.
