This Valentine’s Day the Nationwide WWI Museum and Memorial in Kansas Metropolis is opening up its vault of WWI poems, wartime love letters, and romantic postcards to assist out these already fortunate in love and people hoping to taking pictures their shot on Cupid’s day.

From the considerably complicated postcards of a putti-esque babe wearing uniform—à la the 2008 E-Commerce commercials—to postcards advising troopers to maintain it tight (simply what number of males had been gaining weight on the Western Entrance from stress-eating hardtack and Bully beef that this wanted to change into a postcard?), the museum has the appropriate card—or message—for you.

  • Act pure…

  • Maintain it tight or lose me ceaselessly.

  • Imaginative and prescient!

  • Girls, if a person doesn’t take a look at you want this he ain’t price it.

  • Discovering love in a hopeless place.

  • Is pink tea a euphemism?

  • Romance within the time of struggle proves, within the iconic phrases of Future’s Little one, that generally all you want is “a soldier that ain’t scared to face up for me.”

  • Your relationship feeling stale? Maintain the romance contemporary with some {couples} knitting.
