This was sent to my Grandmother from my Uncle (in the Navy) in 1956 while he was in transit back to the states.He was awaiting a hop from Guam. I think it's interesting that G'ma used it to dab her lipstick with, then kept it all those years! ha

I just noticed the cancel on you post card, its from the Naval Base in Guam.

This is a keeper, Naval cancels are very collectible

Nice Postcard Connie.

I think the lipstick gives it added appeal.
