Many wounded veterans going to general hospitals ... This makes their trip as comfortable as possible, but... sometimes makes it hard for others to get Pullman space! There's the shift to the Pacific, too The pictures of the wounded men above taken en route by permission of the War De partment-help explain why the travel situa tion is more critical than ever. But they tell only part of the story. In addition to the many sleeping cars Pull man is privileged to provide to transport American wounded to hospitals in this coun try, many more cars are needed to carry out the greatest mass movement of troops in his tory. The need is increasing daily. More than a million fighting men will cross America this year. Many thousands of them will travel in Pullman comfort. Many will make side-trips home on furlough, too, before going "on to Tokyo." So the militaryload on trainswill prob ably be greater-forthe next few months at least-thanat any time since we have been at war! If you have to take a trip-and should find it hard to get the Pullman space you want ex actly when you want it-please remember that Pullman's war job isn't over, either!
