Patriotic Young Women 1940's
Unfortunately, I couldn't find a picture that fit this week's Sepia Saturday prompt. I did, however, find a picture of two patriotic young women posing in front of a service flag. Originally used in the First World War, service flags became popular again in the Second and were hung in the windows of those with family serving in the war. Each blue star represented a family member fighting, and each gold star represented family members who had died during service. They are still used today.
To all my fellow Americans, Happy 4th of July!
And if you know who these two ladies may be, let us know in the comments!
