Marie T Glass's insight:

In world war II all types of supplies were being rationed. Everything from food to gas. The government gave out ration stamps and books so that people could still get what they needed but with out exceed the limit. The american people had to ration so that the american soldiers can have the necessary supplies for the war. World War II also helped america get out of the deppression.

Marie T Glass's insight:

The american gorvernment came up with different types of drives to help the war effort. Scraps like tin and rubber were collected in vast quantities to help the war effort. When woman would cook they would save the fat so that the military could use it to make bombs. Fashion designers gave fur vests to the troops to help the keep warm during the war. Women also were asked to send in there hosieries so that they can be made into powder bags. Paper was also needed to pack gun shells for the troops. The troops needed so many different supplies from the american people so they were incouraged with propaganda to help out the war effort.
