U.S Army Air Corps Recruitment Poster
Its early 1942, and like most young people in America, you are wondering how you can help the war effort. America had been attacked by Japan the previous December, plunging the country into the worldwide conflict that would come to define an entire generation. The forces of evil are on the march across the globe, threatening democracy and the American way of life. Walking through your town, you come across a simple poster, colored in patriotic red, white, and blue, that says "LETS GO! U.S.A. KEEP 'EM FLYING!" Thats when it hits you-YOU could be a pilot. You could fly in the Army Air Corps! And with that, you embark on the heroic adventure of a lifetime.
That was how thousands of young men (and women too, serving in the Womens Army Air Corps) first began their service in the Second World War. This t-shirt from the Aeroplane Apparel Company captures the excitement of that first step that so many took towards the cockpit and the fight by displaying an authentic reproduction of an actual Air Corps recruitment poster from the WWII era. Along with the "LETS GO! U.S.A. KEEP 'EM FLYING!" message three fighters are depicted flying in close formation. This poster got the idea across that Uncle Sam wanted pilots, and that YOU were needed to join the Air Corps!
