WWII E-Award Poster


I found this WWII era E-Award poster on the New York State Museum website. In 1942 the Schenectady plant of the American Locomotive company received the Army-Navy Production award in recognition of its work producing M-3 and M-4 tanks. My grandfather Cortland was a welder at the time and was pleased to receive the award. As pleased as he was, Cortland was still eager to join the Army (this is discussed in my book).

You can read more of my blog posts about Schenectady's war production.
