Buy a Victory Liberty Loan Bond to Help Pay Off WWI Debt, 1919

Patriotic Americans supported the war effort in World War I by purchasing Liberty Bonds, first in June of 1917 and then in October of the same year, a third time in May, 1918, and again in October, 1918. And when the war was finally won, they "finished the job" by putting their money Victory Liberty Loan or Victory Loan Bonds, which were issued in May 1919 to consolidate short-term debt issued during the war.
