An easy way to facilitate censorship, postcards like these were often sent home by soldiers. Soldiers could not write anything on the card and were only allowed to cross out phrases that were not applicable to them. The reason for this was to keep morale at home high by not exposing the reality of the battlefront and to keep secret information away from the enemy. This card is addressed to George C. Laney's mother, Mrs. G. W. Laney.
