This is a button identifying a member of Bundles for America. Bundles for America was started in 1942 by the President's Committee on War Relief Agencies. The founding organization president was Mrs. Wales Latham, and most of the volunteers were women. The organization was a national war relief club, providing regulation garments, "service kits" and furnishings to the Armed Forces during World War II. The slogan "Let's Hit Back Hard" seen on this button was adopted in response to the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor.
