The YMCA made these postcards available to American troops returning from World War I. The back provided room to put the soldier's name, date of arrival, unit, troopship, camp to which he was headed and mailing address of a family member. This was a way to let loved ones know that the soldier had returned safely to the United States and would soon be writing them a letter.
