Overview The U.S did a lot during the war and going into the war. After the attack on Pearl Harbor, the U.S had to prepare for war right away. Congress passed the selective service act to bring more men into the military. Some women started to volunteer also. There was a lot saving up to do when the war came. The war was really important so we even save up rations towards food, clothing, and etc.
