V-Mail

   V-mail was the mail of U.S. military personnel during World War II that was written on special V-mail letter sheets and then microfilmed and developed once it had reached the mainland. It reduced the space that traditional mail would have otherwise occupied and freed up valuable cargo space on ships.
