Artifact of the Week - WWII Bond Poster and the Story of Gus Leonida

Artifact of the Week!

This week we have a WWII poster encouraging people on the Home Front to invest in War Bonds to help in the war effort. Across the country people planted Victory Gardens, bought War Bonds, and pitched in any way they could.

However, did you know that the person who sold the most War Bonds in the entire USA lived right here in Reno County?

Read his story of patriotism and love for Reno County here:
