    Very nice picture!

    The scene in The Pacific comes to my mind... The Marines return from intense combat to find beautiful girls handing out sweets... I can only imagine how surreal that must have felt.

    Apparently, the Salvation Army women, that I compared to the Vietnam War "Donut Dolies" were actually called, "Salvation Army Lassies." Looking at this WWI poster from the official Liberty Loan history by Labert St. Clair, The Story of the Liberty Loans, Washington, DC: James William Bryan Press, 1919, I would say that donuts were their trademark. The poster is by G. M. Richards. Dwight
