    AMERICA HERE'S MY BOY--The mom will be proud her her boy lives OR dies! Odd part of the lyrics to even sing that! As a mom I can't even bear to think it. But she sends him with no regrets.
    THREE WONDERFUL LETTERS FROM HOME. Cover shows ,Soldier's wife, child and his mom all writing to their loved one"OverThere"
    I hope no-one missed the mail call which kept spirits up!
    SAY A PRAYER FOR THE BOYS OVER THERE, Family shown gathered and bowed their heads with fervent prayers coming from home front. and Congregations prayed in Church , most parishioners with a Soldier ,Sailor, or Marine in the conflict!
    BUY A BOND! Poster like sheet music cover urged folks at home to support the War Effort by BUYING BONDS. In WW11, they stopped movies and got up on stage touting War Bond with Officials selling bonds in the lobby!
    This is a WW1 Effort, Advertisement song on sheet music.Folks could Buy the song, learn it and sing it anywhere to promote the sale of BONDS. The back cover is Kind Of Chilling, It Says :(In large Letters)
    FOURTH UNITED STATES LIBERTY LOAN
    BUY BONDS FOR YOUR BOY & MY BOY
    THE SAFEST INVESTMENT IN THE WORLD--A LIBERTY BOND
    IF YOU CAN'T JAB A BAYONET--GRAB A BOND!
    BETWEEN MEALS__BUY WAR SAVINGS STAMPS!
    AND AT MEALS SAVE FOOD--PUT AMERICA FIRST!
    WE'LL WIN THE WAR WITH BREAD & LEAD!
    Other sheet music in WW1, told of KNITTING, comfort articles of clothing, scarves, gloves. socks, caps, etc. SENDING PACKAGES of the favored items such as , hard cookies, fruitcake and cigarettes! ROLLING STRIPS OF CLOTH FOR BANDAGES,
    and KEEPING THE HOMEFIRES BURNING! Which I think America Did Very Well!!! BRAVO to the HOMEFRONT!

      Thanks Jenni! I bought some war sheets from another CW member on ebay. Her dad's collection. She does not collect sheet music, she does jewelry.

      I feel the same way you do Lois! I couldn't fathom the thought of handing over one of my boys as bravely as this lady does.

      I don't know any woman like the woman in the lyrics of this song. I'd have a son, on the Greyhound Bus to Nogales! One hour away.
