North Carolina played a significant role in World War II. Approximately 258,000 of its citizens served in the army, 90,000 in the navy, and 13,000 in the marines. Home to twenty-four military installations, North Carolina trained more soldiers than any other state. It also excelled in producing textiles, ships, food, and other goods for the war effort. Outer Banks inhabitants observed blackouts and watched as German U-boats sank Allied ships just offshore. And people across the state did their part by rationing, growing victory gardens, buying war bonds, and volunteering at USOs.
