You are one of the 2204 persons in the armed forces from Harvey, Illinois, who are receiving identical Christmas boxes from the people of your home town.

We hope the box reaches you in good condition and in time to add a bit of cheer to whatever limited celebration Christmas may bring to you this year.

We cannot adequately express our gratitude for the real job you are doing, nor show our appreciation of the sacrifices you are making. It is our hope that this Christmas box will carry to you the sincere and heartfelt wishes of the folks back home, who confidently await the glorious victory. God speed it!

May your next Christmas celebration be at home among your loved ones, and around a tree trimmed right here in Harvey.

Merry Christmas

BEHIND-THE-LINES COMMITTEE

Harvey, Illinois


And so were labeled the Christmas boxes sent to all of the men and women from Harvey, Illinois that were defending their country in the armed forces during World War II.

Many of the service people sent cards and letters of thanks back to the women of the “Behind The Lines Committee” which consisted of the women of Harvey, the Alumnae Association of Thornton Township High School, BABs (Behind-The-Lines Committee Auxiliary for the Boys) and the Girl Scouts.

These letters were saved by Ruth Lambert and are now the property of the Thornton Township Historical Society. They are on temporary loan to the South Suburban Genealogical and Historical Society. The letters were indexed and other material compiled to honor the memory of the service men and women.

The following is the index to the letters.

As a result of acquiring these letters, a companion SSGHS Special Publication was compiled honoring the men and women from Harvey, Illinois who served in the Armed Forces during World War II. Harvey, Illinois During World War II is available from SSGHS. Go to the Publications page on this Website and scroll down to Volume 11 in the Research Series for more information.

COPIES OF THESE LETTERS ARE AVAILABLE FROM SSGHS
