War Posters

War posters, created by the federal government throughout World War II, were a common sight, and reminded people that soldiers needed support from the home front. Some images encouraged people to volunteer for military service. Others told people about different ways home folk could help. Buying war bonds contributed money to the war effort. Scrap metal could be collected and recycled to make items such as weapons, ammunition, and even airplanes. Posters like these were a common sight during the war.
