Most men were sent to war whether they liked it or not. They served in the armed forces at sea, on land or in the air. Those who didn't go were wanted to do the jobs the soldi…ers did before they left.. Women did most of the work after the men left. They were encuraged to join the workforce as substitutes. In addition, women took more care of children and helped whenever, whoever and however they could.. Hopes this helps!. Cat
The soldiers were thought of heroes by everyone when they came home. When they returned they had street parties to thank them for there great service.
Most women lost their jobs when the men came back from war. Men then went into the jobs women were doing. Women went back to being house wives; some women did not like this. I…f women were single and the worked in the civil services they were allowed to keep their jobs until they got married. Not all women lost their jobs but sadly most did.
When the world war veterans came home they were treated Ike herooes
Harry Houdini saved money and donated it to help the wounded soldiers after world war I
Try to shrug off the shell shock from the war and get on with life (which was very hard).
They were often screened\nlike the soldiers couldn't write anything bad about the war to demoralize people back home\n
Warren G. Harding
In the US the government was in a hurry to shrink the military quickly and start saving money. As quickly as they could be processed men were given a discharge and sent on the…ir way. Most got an honorable discharge, and with it an Honorable Discharge Lapel Pin. The pin depicted a somewhat pot-bellied, ungainly eagle in flight, and the vets called it a "ruptured duck". An expression current during the war years was that anything taking off fast took off like a "ruptured duck", so now they had one. Once back home many vets took their discharge papers to the county courthouse and recorded them, just like a deed for land. This way they could always get a certified copy, if they lost the original. There were few jobs to go get. All factories had been converted over to producing items for the military during the war, and with the war won these contracts were all canceled and the factories were retooling to resume production of civilian goods. The discharged vets were given unemployment - $20 per week for up to 52 weeks. They referred to themselves as the "52-20 Club". Many drank too much and took a long time to settle down and reacclimate to civilian life, and the prospect of living instead of dying a violent death while young. If a man still had health problems when he was returned to the states, from wounds, frozen feet, psycho-neurotic disorders, whatever, he was not immediately discharged. He stayed in the military hospitals until he was as well as he was going to get. Then he was evaluated for any remaining disability and authorized a pension if he was totally or partially disabled. Rehabilitation was given to those who needed it, such as amputees and the blinded ones. After he had reached the maximum of medical improvement he was discharged. Some psychotic cases were merely transferred to the VA and never really got home.
Just saying which of these without saying who these are will notallow someone to know the answer. It is important to include all ofthe question and answer choices so someone w…ill know who was mostclosely related to that return. But in all probability the name you want is that of Warren G.Harding, who invented the word 'normalcy' and made the campaignpromise of a 'return to normalcy" in the first place.
Selective Service Act, 2.8 million men (who were U.S. citizens)
There were a number of reasons, some of them strictly personal. The reason which outraged all soldiers, and has echoed down the decades since WW1, is that many soldiers r…eturned to find that they had lost their homes and/or farms to foreclosure. They had had no way to pay the mortgage on army pay, and no way to defend against foreclosure while kept overseas. It is to the credit of Congress that they introduced legislation to protect men serving in the military from this in future. Nowadays any attempt to foreclose must be preceded by a "Soldiers and Sailors Notice" published in local newspapers, asking if anyone affected is currently serving in the military. A 'yes' reply triggers protective action. One other reason there was much anger among the soldiers was the logistic problem of getting them home. The assembly point for the trip home was Brest, France, and many soldiers waited up to a year there for transport home.
The Selective Service Act enabled the first draft in America.
Things were sent while in boot camp, but when they were deployedgenerally family didn't know where they were. Some letters did getthrough, but very few packages. Where the dep…loyment took place wasin the trenches of Europe and mail was delivered off and on.
