My Country As Seen In Vintage War Posters
A Look At World War I and II in vintage war posters.
Just like artifacts, these vintage war posters from World War I and II, depict the hard-working man and woman, the average American citizen, who's influence and support was vitally-important to keep our country unified, strong, and progressively-moving against the foes who would threaten our democracy, our freedoms and cherished way of life.
Who really likes war . . .?
No one. If hard-pressed for the truth. War means bloodshed, death, and loss of property as well as geographic locations many times. War, like death, is a cold fact of an imperfect life that we humans have made ourselves, and until the day comes when we can learn the fundamental principles of getting along with other nations, then there will always war.
Pictures Speak More Than A Thousand Words . . .
and this is why I chose to display these vintage war posters. I was too young to remember any of World War I and II, but my dad, the late Austin Avery, and my uncle Dow Terry, both of Hamilton, Alabama would talk in length of their time spent in the service.
My dad was in the Air Force and my uncle Dow, was a master sergeant in World War II. I am extremely proud of these guys, who with their willing to sacrifice their lives if needed, helped to keep my country, The United States, free, strong and proud.
I willingly salute Austin, Dow, and all members of our Armed Forces now serving in Afghanistan and Iraq, as well as their families, and families of those valored veterans of all of our nation's wars and that, brothers, DOES include Vietnam.
You deserve our respect and appreciation.
