WWII US Marines Recruitment Poster December 16th 1941
This is one of those items that appeared on ebay which I saved the picture but didn't bother to look at the details of the item at the time. About a month after the auction I finally got a good look at the this items and didn't realize that the poster was from Salida, Colorado and makes reference that the Marines will be meeting with prospective recruits on December 16th 1941, a little over a week after the attack on Pearl Harbor. A very historic Marine recruitment poster from the opening days the US's entry into WWII.
