WWII Volunteerism

Every young man was told to fight for their country, and if their parents couldn't convince them, then the constant bombardment of war posters did. At the beginning of the war, the total amount of soldiers was only a bit more than 300,000, but by the year 1942 we had over 3,000,000 soldiers fighting for the Allied cause.

Victory Gardens

Everyone was told to start their own vegetable gardens, so that they could minimize the rations that they used. Public parks, and almost every town had a town victory garden. Victory gardens became common, and weren't exclusive to the U.S. England, Australia, and Canada grew them to help the war effort for the allied forces. Even Germany grew victory gardens.
