During World War II the government and even radio and movie stars worked hard to convince people to buy war bonds. These bonds were kind of like loans to the government. People would buy bonds and the government promised to return them with interest after ten years or more. During the war, the government needed all the extra money it could get to help pay for war equipment. War bonds or defense bonds were bought by purchasing stamps for 10 or 15 cents each. The stamps were then pasted into booklets that could be turned in when full for a $25 war bond. War stamps and bonds were not only a way for the government to raise money, but a way for every person to participate in the war effort. It became very patriotic to buy bonds and stamps.
