Mail was not only a way of communicating with loved ones, but was absolutely necessary for keeping up the moral on both the battlefront and the homefront.  Because of this, many stationery and postcard kits were produced to help the servicemen and women keep up with their letter writing.  The following are examples of these kits that I've collected so far.
