That's a highly desirable (and classic)  early war poster--is it full sheet or half sheet? Thanks for sharing

It's full but resizing so I could post messed it up,I'll try to post better one.

I picked up an envelope with four posters, "The Four Freedoms," by Norman Rockwell, in a dated military envelope (I think it was '43).  I love those things, but it's tough to find room to display them all.  Apparently, there are two sizes, one huge, one smaller, just fine for home display.  Perhaps 15 inches by 20. Love those.  Those need archival framing, which I haven't gotten around to yet.

 

I also have a Seattle poster calling for Japanese Americans to report for Internment, which is kinda fun.

There are some great pieces on display in the forum! I obtained this 1941-1945 Army Reserve Recruitment poster from an antique store in Colorado this last year. * Sorry about the sideways photo, I haven't been able to get it corrected, although it shows upright on my screen it doesn't when uploaded for some reason.*

 

An example of the poster can be found at the National Archives, Still Picture Record Section, Special Media Archives Services Division record identifier: 513498.

 

It appears when comparing this one to the one at the archives, the below part in blue "Fort Leavenworth"  was added. I'm guessing these posters were meant to be modified at the local recruiting level to make them unique to each recruiting officer, in this case Leavenworth. I find this very interesting.
