*"Well, Mr. In Hollywood.. you certainly have outdone yourself this year! What an amazing collection."* - rohanaka

I am so pleased to read that. It was an eclectic grouping this year - some nice artwork and some enlightening examples of "international" appeals.

The artwork of Jes Schlaijker was a recent find for me and I was stunned with his talent. During his stint at the Pentagon during WWII, he painted many portraits of military officials and leaders - often while wearing a suit! I only wish I could have found a complete, high quality set of his images for the U.S. Army.

I am most fond of the McClelland Barclay pieces. I have been a fan of the artist for awhile. He has created some nice illustration art for various uses, including Movie Posters and other film-related materials.

But I didn't know about his death while on board a Navy ship during WWII until I began the research for this weekend's postings. That was a sad surprise for me.

And thank you for for saying you appreciated the international images. Many organizations, including the U. S. Govt, used ethnic heritage as a means of rallying support for the War and other efforts. In a land of immigrants, it only makes sense to enlist those types of appeals. And whoever was responsible for creating the posters of the "Open Letter" series from the SEPost deserves a medal.

I hope you enjoyed the holiday weekend even without making it to the park in Kansas City this year. Here's a little something also from the SEPost to make up for the any disappointment you may feel.

I doubt the street still looks like this but I hope that cool fountain is still there.

Well, Mr. In Hollywood.. you certainly have outdone yourself this year! What an amazing collection. These scholastic posters are SOMETHING.



I googled around a bit to see if I could put them into some sort of context, but could not find a whole lot about them. (though I likely may not have looked long enough) But I did find a website with a lot info on "Scholastic' as an organization and it does appear they have a history of being on the cutting edge for a lot of social issues (like race, for example) I really liked the Danny Kaye one. The examples of "hair and eyes" and how it would be just as ridiculous to segregate or be prejudiced for those reasons as skin color.. are the examples I use myself when discussing that issue with little kids.. because it is so easy to understand. Way cool group of pics.



I think my most fave for your collection this year have to be those open letters to the various nations.. (I really like your "international" focus this year.) But I also really (really) liked those first ones you posted (medical corps, infantry, engineers, etc)



THANK you so much for keeping this thread going. It is a wonderful tradition and one that I look forward to every year. I appreciate all the hard work you put into it, sir. Hats off to you! :)

More of the incredible tributes to enlistment in the service to our country. I think now of what it is like, fewer than 3% serve this nation. It is enough to make one cynical, especially a mother of an Airman who served.

You certainly are off to a grand start this year, sir. Thanks for posting the info on Barclay. He had a gift, to be sure.






But so far for this year, I think the ones by Schlaikjer are my most fave. I love all the different groups (infantry, engineers, and the military police even) but OH the medical ones..those are SOMETHING. The one with the nurse hugging the little girl is quite special. (and the one above that one: "Service above self"... oh me, quite breathtaking)

We did not get to go out to our traditional "Celebration at the Station" event in KC(Memorial Day Concert and fireworks) this year (first time in over 7 yrs we have missed it, alas) So looking back through here has been a nice way to pass the evening.




Thanks again for all your hard work.
