On The Homefront contains information that illustrates different aspects of life on the homefront during various U.S. military conflicts.
More than any war before or since, the federal government was active in numerous ways, both military and civilian, at the regional level and in local communities. This section will explore the various ways Nederland mobilized to support the war effort. Topics will include a variety of WWII activities such as: rationing, scrap metal drives, war bonds, Civilian Defense, blackout tests, Victory gardens, USO, Red Cross, etc.
The first topic we've added concerns the Buy A Bomber Campaign.
As we collect information, we plan to add Home Front activities and issues that correspond with WWI, Korea, Vietnam, the Cold War, Gulf War, Afghanistan, Iraq, etc.
