Navy SEAL Sniper Chris Kyle – The deadliest sniper the American military has ever seen. Saving 1000’s of servicemen and Iraqi national’s lives during his 10 year stint as a Navy SEAL sniper, Chris Kyle was in every major battle of the Iraq war and was so effective at killing Iraqi insurgent terrorists that they called him “The Devil of Ramadi” while placing an Eighty thousand dollar bounty on his head.
Loretta Perfectus Walsh (22 Apr 1896 - 6 Aug 1925) became the first American active-duty Navy woman, and the first woman allowed to serve as a woman, in any of the U.S. armed forces other than as a nurse, when she enlisted in the U.S. Naval Reserves in 1917. 12 days later, WWI was declared. She became the first woman Navy Petty Officer, Chief Yeoman, and was the first of 13,000 yeoman females entitled to receive the same military pay and benefits.
This World War II poster asking women to enlist is a form of propaganda because its statement about being happy and proud after serving in the Navy can be questioned. Is everyone really happy? Also, using a picture of women smiling hides the gruesome casualties of war.
