Kilroy Was Here

During WWII, it is believed that James Kilroy - a shipyard inspector in Quincy Massachusetts - began scrawling this phrase on ships to prove that he had been there and inspected the rivets. The ships were being built so fast that there was no time to paint them which would have covered the markings.

The phrase "Kilroy Was Here" soon traveled the globe, becoming a rallying cry and morale booster around the world. So popular did "Kilroy Was Here" became that it has been reported that the phrase and accompanying cartoon have been found on the Great Wall of China, on the Arc De Triomphe, and even scrawled in the dust on the moon!

Now, as America marks the 63rd anniversary of the end of WWII, would be an appropriate time for the U.S. Postal Service to recognize the tremendous contribution the phrase "Kilroy Was Here" made to the Allied war effort.
