"Lucky Strike Goes to War"

Lucky Strikes used to be in a green pack as they would be in this 1939 photo. When the war started the green dyes, paint and ink were redirected to the military. Luck Strike then switched to the red and white design and took out ads with the slogan, "Lucky Strike Goes to War!", I believe they were also included with the standard K-rations.

The fire extinguisher on the wall was an old brass style hand pump that had a twist lock and was filled with water. My father had one for years in our basement.
