America's Fighting Forces WTW Productions - 1983
Note: This is another neat set that reprints cards that originally appeared on "Dixie Cup" ice cream lids; the reprint version is on 2-1/2" x 3-1/8" cards. From the title card: "This series of 24 Military scenes, originally issued on Ice Cream lids, has been produced in full color, size and format of the most popular collectibles of that era, "Picture Cards." The scenes reflect in art, style and text the national mood of 1942." Thanks much to Jan Burns Cederquist for the original checklist!
