I bought an old briefcase filled with papers and photos and it turned out to be the personal briefcase of Francis Case a senator from the South Dakota. Its filled with cool things including two of these old posters. I am trying to determine what date this might come from?
Smedley D. Butler Poster / Broadside

After looking closer at Francis Case it looks like he was in the USMC in WWI. He had a bunch of photos that seem newer than WWI to me . I will post them in this thread instead of a new one. He had alot of photos of planes and parachuters

That poster would look killer in our Marine Recruiting office in Rapid City!
I think the brass might frown on that...the Corps tends to selectively forget Butler's post-war history.
That said, they are neat, and would look neat next to that check of yours

I dount the brass of today would even know what the hell the poster was about
Oh yeah, I am sure the corps forgot about an outspoken General of theirs who was a two time MoH recipient.

Officially, we have a habit of whitewashing out history
Notice we don't say much about the Civil War in those bootcamp history classes
