Un released to the the U.S. Army
3 May 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Private Snafu returns home with a large coming party.

Snafu tells his family, girlfriend, and friends what he did.

Course the stuff he reveals is confidential and not suppose to revealed to the public.

But like always Snafu announces all the Army's secrets and plans including the bomb.

It's another memorable Snafu toon.

This Private Snafu cartoon wasn't shown to the U.S. army because it'll spread fear about the development of the bomb.

but it did get released on the DVD set, course I had to download it in order to see it.
