Dozens of carriers leaving New York City's main city post office at 33rd street on June 15, 1936. Among the items carriers had in their mailbags for delivery that day were the first “bonus army” checks. The “bonus army” were World War I veterans who demonstrated in Washington, DC in 1932 for more rapid payment of their Service Certificate payments. The veterans received cashable bonds in 1936.
