Celebrate Veterans

Veterans Day is a day dedicated to honoring those who fought in service for the United States. Veterans Day originated as “Armistice Day” on November 11, 1919. The holiday came about after the first anniversary of the end of World War I, and observed those who had fought in the Armed Forces. Congress passed a resolution in 1926 for an annual observance, which made Veterans Day a federal holiday.

"Aim High...Join U.S. Marine Reserve" WWII Recruiting Poster

This poster encourages onlookers to "Join U.S. Marine Reserves." It features the famous “Aim High” slogan on the top in purple lettering. The recruiting slogan was first used by the Marines, and later reused by the U.S. Air Force. Posters such as this one were commonly produced during wartime to encourage onlookers to join the war effort. While these choromolithographs were produced by popular artists, they were not often preserved to the same standard as today. Thus, finding original war posters in such wonderful condition such as this one is quite difficult.
