Many of our relatives, particularly those who were in the military during World War I and World War II, have old post cards that
reflect society at the time. You could argue, of course, that the mere fact that wars were being fought during the periods referenced demonstrates
that the world was never a kinder, gentler place, but the utter crudeness and lack of civility in discourse was certainly at a lower level back
My mother-in-law recently gave Melanie a stack of postcards that her brother (Melanie's uncle) sent while he was in the U.S. Army at the
beginning of WWII.
Yeah, this is a bit off-topic, but a lot of people like seeing the old post cards.
