AN AMERICAN GI PROPOSES A NEW RIBBON FOR VICTORY OVER GERMANY

Dear YANK:

Some of the boys here and I have been thinking that since we have a victory ribbon for all theaters of operations why couldn’t we have one for victory over Germany? One for the boys who participated against Germany. I’ve drawn a picture of the ribbon and have a list of names of fellows who think it’s okay. We would appreciate it if you would submit it for us and also a picture in YANK for the other boys so they could send their opinion on it.

—S/Sgt. Christian Shanks – Also signed by 45 others.
