A hang tag for milk bottles that tells people to drink three glasses of milk a day and to follow three civil defense steps: learn air raid signals, equip a shelter area in the home, and join a local civil defense service.

The Maine Civil Defense and Public Safety Department prepared and distributed the hang tags.
