This Marines recruiting poster was created by Vic Guinness, who was a captain in the Marines. It was not uncommon to find officers working as artists for their branch during World War II, mostly by creating recruiting posters or illustrating branch literature. The bright colors used in this poster are quite a contrast from the muted tones popular on World War I posters. Pritzker Military Library | Let 'Em Have It - U.S. Marines
