World War 2 Sayings

This was a joke in the military publication Stars and Stripes that had circulated during World War 2: “The Russians are fighting for their lives, the British for their homes, the Americans for souvenirs.”

Another saying about American troops in England that made the rounds: “Over paid, over sexed and over here.” The American Army countered by calling Brits, “Underpaid, undersexed and under Eisenhower.”

NIce lines, Mike. I had heard the first part of joke two, but not any of the rest. Thanks for a day brightener!
