Salvation Army

The Salvation Army sent women into the front lines in France to provide aid and comfort to American doughboys. Most prominent was their production of doughnuts to give the boys “a taste of home”. A small number of black and white postcards were produced showing doughnut making and consumption. A couple of additional postcards show aid and comfort to the wounded or behind the lines tasks such as the mending uniforms.
