"A for effort" or "E for effort" - which is correct?
Advertisements [?]
Had a heated debate about this at a bar last night - it was 2 against 2. I googled it, and found this explanation on Yahoo! Answers, but don't know if it's correct:

E for Effort came from US Government public service advertisements during World War 2. Employees were encouraged to increase productivity to support the war. One way to award productivity was a pin with the letter E.

I have an "E for Effort" pin that was given to my father.

Can anyone shed some light on this?
