REMARKS:One [1] piece of Victory Mail [V-Mail], dated 8 April 1945, to Mr. Meade Cardinal from Helen Jane Sutter. Victory Mail was a program during World War II, whereby letters from U.S. military personnel were microfilmed for shipment overseas. On arrival in the U.S., the microfilm was printed into a standard paper format and delivered. Transporting microfilm rather than paper letters saved fuel costs and shipping space.
