Paper Money-U.S. | Longstrider

I am trying to concentrate on camps that had Italian prisoners located in California. Also I go for camps that were changed into Italian Service Units or ISU. This happened after September 8, 1943 when Italy signed the armistice and became an ally of the Allied Powers. The once POW Italians now were able to get outside jobs at more varied companies. Kind of a work furlough. They went outside the camp to work and came back at night. The new designation of ISU separated them from POW Germans.

This time I decided to gamble that I would get them back and sent in two POW chits. The first chit is from Roswell, New Mexico. As I should review for new members, these Prisoner of War chits or vouchers were given to WWII Axis prisoners at the different camps they were interred.
