In the winter of 1945 there were many soldiers who were still injured and recovering in army hospitals across the world. To help pay back its war debt, the people of the United States banded together through donations, bond purchasing, and spreading glad tidings and good cheer. Sadie Marks (Mary Livingston) spoke this Red Cross PSA at the end of the December 2nd, 1945 episode of the Jack Benny Program. The PSA is followed by a show-closing Lucky Strike commercial that is comical by today's standards and knowledge of the dangers of smoking cigarettes.
