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!

The Washington Monument is built of stone contributed by all the nations of the earth to honor the founder of this republic. From Arlington, across the river, where sleep the men who died for freedom, it looks like a giant spike that God might have driven into this earth, saying "Here I stake a claim for the home of liberty."

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.

Your reactions tell me resurrecting this thread a worthwhile endeavor.

An accomplished painter, illustrator, sculptor and jewelry designer, McClelland Barclay had developed a very successful art career by the time he became a Lieutenant in the Naval Reserve in 1938. On 19 October 1940, Barclay reported for active duty. He served in the New York Recruiting Office, designing posters over the next two and a half years that would become some of the Navy's most popular recruiting images of World War II. With the entrance of the United States into the war in 1941, he volunteered to become a combat artist. Though not accepted as a part of the official Combat Art Section, he fulfilled similar functions through the Recruiting Office.
LCDR Barclay made short tours of duty in both the Atlantic and the Pacific. On 18 July 1943, Barclay was aboard LST-342 (Group 14, Flotilla 5) when it was torpedoed by Japanese submarine Ro-106 at 1:30 a.m. He had been on board since the first of the month, sketching and taking photographs, during which time LST-342 had been carrying ammunition and supplies to Rendova, New Georgia in the Solomon Islands from Guadalcanal. The torpedo struck the aft portion of the ship where officers and others, including Barclay, were berthed. The stern sank immediately. Barclay, along with most of the crew, perished. The bow of the LST remained afloat and was towed to a beach on the island of Ghavutu so that any useable equipment could be salvaged. Remains of the ship are still rusting there today. Barclay was posthumously awarded the Purple Heart Medal, and entitled to the American Defense Service Medal, Fleet Clasp; the Asiatic-Pacific Area Campaign Medal; the American Area Campaign Medal and the World War II Victory Medal.
