Military Monday – WWII Coca Cola Ad

Ad in the San Antonio Express newspaper, 17 June 1943. “Even a general in Africa writes home how much he misses meeting the gang downtown to enjoy a Coca-Cola. Overseas, Coke is a refreshing remembrance of home. Men cherish its taste and refreshment.”

From my dad Carl Armstrong’s scrapbooks – Coca Cola Ad – 17 June 1943.

This was in my dad’s scrapbook with his other clippings of his time stationed in San Marcos, Texas. June 17 was his birthday.
