Happy #NationalDonutDay! Did you know that women known as "Donut Dollies" brought donuts out to the front lines for our troops during World War II? A part of the American Red Cross Clubmobile service, they brought the comforts of home to our servicemembers in converted trucks equipped with kitchens to fry donuts and make coffee. They even played some tunes. Image: Woman, probably a member of the Red Cross, serving soldiers donuts in the field. "Cervaro, Italy." Circa 1944. Gift of Vincent Yannetti, from the collection of The National World War II Museum: http://bit.ly/1FaqdRc

On #MemorialDay the Museum was presented with new artifacts that belonged to Private Earl J. Keating, a New Orleans native who was killed in action on December 5, 1942, in the Australian Territory of Papua. Keating was buried where he fell, and his gravesite was lost until 2011 when his identification tags were discovered. These objects that were buried with him in his lost grave across the world, his identification tags and Sheaffer’s Balance fountain pen, are now a part of the Museum's collection. Keating's remains were not identified until August 2015 and were finally laid to rest in New Orleans on May 28, 2016. Learn more about him here:http://bit.ly/1X8x20J Artifacts, Gift of Nadau duTreil Keating, from the collection of The National WWII Museum.
