[Identification of item], Samples of V-Mail (Victory Mail) from the Bromiley, MISC MSS 345, La Crosse Public Library Archives, La Crosse, WI
V-mail, short for victory mail, was a mail process used by the United States during World War II (WWII) to allow civilians and soldiers stationed abroad to securely and cheaply correspond. To reduce the cost of sending a letter through the military postal system, v-mail would be censored, then copied to film, and then printed back onto paper upon arriving at its destination. V-mail was sent at no cost to the soldiers, and postage for civilians was three cents.
