(Not my cover)
On this day it is important to remember those who sacrificed live and limb for our freedoms. As war raged in both the east and west, folks at home also made sacrifices; cars could not be purchased for years, metal drives helped support the war effort, basic commodities like butter and gas were rationed. (Yet today we seem to think that not having cheap Asian merchandise or avocado toast is a real hardship?) We need to redouble our efforts to teach, communicate, and ensure all generations understand the lessons that history teaches us. Philately can play a role.
