I found this postcard at the Allentown Paper Show. I already have it, but I liked the message and drawing on the back.
“Hi ‘Good Lookin’ Well! You can expect the war over in 3 months, you see, I’m in the Navy.” Howard proceeded to draw a picture of himself smiling with hair in a before picture and bald and frowning with “skin head” written next to it in the after picture.
The card was mailed on August 8, 1944 to Pearl Hawley in West Hartford, Connecticut. Howard’s estimate of the war being over in 3 months was only off by a little less than a year!
