From the June 16, 1936 News Record:

Veterans in Gillette and Campbell County are anxiously awaiting the arrival of the bonus bonds, which are expected to arrive in Gillette Wednesday on No. 41. Facilities at the local post office have been so arranged that the work can be handled with expediency and thoroughness, according to Postmaster A.E. Littleton. Mr. Littleton also requested that veterans who do not receive notification of the arrival of their bonds, refrain from calling at the post office, as they will be notified immediately upon arrival. It is estimated that approximately $186,000 will be distributed in this county.
