Emergency Note With A Story…

Was This Fading Kiss The Soldier’s Last?

This can’t be called a Short Snorter, there’s not even a single enlisted man’s name. There has to be a really good story behind this Emergency emission Hawaiian banknote with bubblegum pink lip print against the rough paper stock. Was it a reminder from a love back home? Was it an encounter with a native island maiden impressed by an American soldier?

Does it represent a lifelong pledge or a brief encounter?

We have no way of knowing what this indelible love mark represents or the story behind it but it serves as an ironic reminder of the intersection between love and war.
