Great art work, Kyle! The guy in this one looks so much like a young Jeff Goldblum, to me.

Thanks, Kyle, for posting my favorite Patriotic war poster of them all. It was painted by N.C. Wyeth.

Thank you,THANK YOU, Mr. In Hollywood!!!

There are some truly special pics in here to be sure. These latest additions are absolutely beautiful. (especially like the infantry one) I am going to come back later and look through all of them again.

What a wonderful tribute you have collected here these last few years!! It is a very nice way to honor the holiday. (and the men and women who served) Thanks again. :)

Thanks so much for posting these! I too am a fan of the 1778/1943 poster.

*"...you really have to admire the folks who adopted this "everything for our troops" mindset and sacrificed here at home on behalf of our men and women overseas. It wasn't easy for them I am sure. I wonder if we would see that again, if it came down to it in the here and now."* - rohanaka

I think there is an interesting and valuable documentary to be made in a thorough examination of the homefront during WWII. Obviously there are many stories, such as the U.S. Crop Corps, left untold. (If 'smileys' is unawares, then most folks must be.) Such commitment to the country's needs fascinates me.

Honestly, I truly doubt it could be seen again. This country is balkanized and divided so completely that half the population distrusts the other half. And a majority of all adult citizens distrust their Government to do what is right for the Nation. So ideas such as "price controls", "wage ceilings" and "ration stamps" would never find their way into the public sphere. And America is diminished because of that.

keep rohanaka from reading up on the USS Dorado

Gulp.. will have to check on that one another time.. I just got finished watching the PBS special on War Letters and am a total mess. So I will have to recover from that first.

PS: Mr. In Hollywood.. these images from today are among the best this year so far! I really like the one that shows the two eras (1778/1943) together. I have seen others like that before (maybe even in this thread, I can't recall for sure) but I don't think it was WWII. I think the one I am remembering most was from the first World War (but my memory may be failing me at my advanced age). At any rate.. it is a truly fine looking poster. Thanks again.

Chief,

Very cool posters this year! I think you may have outdone last year!

And a big welcome to Smileys, great to have another train lover (and legs) here! Yay! :)
