Rationing Procedures for Foreign Military Personnel

This document, reproduced at the San Francisco Port of Embarkation (SFPE) in Fort Mason, California on June 29, 1943, reflects the ongoing rationing practices; the people subjected to these procedures and practices included not only American citizens, but also the overseas military personnel ordered to complete some of their duties in the United States.  The document covers the major topics of food, shoes, and gasoline – but also gives the personnel instructions on what offices and departments to contact with queries related to the programs.
