I was wondering what these things are and what they usually have on them. Are they like a later version of the "Hit of Week" cardboard records?

I'm thinking it is a "Record your own message" disc- there were quite a few places that would cut a dusc for a serviceman to send a message home- Pepsi sponsored some.

Thanks Estott. That's what I thought they would be. Cool piece of history.

You might also find this of interest -- https://portraitofwar.com/2013/06/13/a- ... digitized/

It would be great to find a record with the mailer still intact:

That's pretty neat. There is one on ebay right now, but I really don't have a good way to play them, so I'll pass.
