Arrow War Bonds


Quote:
In December 1941, the US declared war on Japan and Germany declared war on the US shortly thereafter.. This was the starting point for a large scale – and thus expensive — defense program.. The problem of the financing of World War II was greater than that of World War I, as the struggle lasted longer and the amounts involved were larger..The public debt rose from $50 billion in 1940 to $260 billion in 1945..A version of Series EE bonds, known as the Patriot Bond, is a sort of post-September 11 war bond, but has never enjoyed the broad subscription of the Series E war bond.. These bonds are no longer available as of 2012...
