The “Enlist Now – U.S Marine Corps” poster shows a member of the Marine corps wading through swamps, again playing on the theme on travel and adventure. The soldier in question is holding his gun in the air to stop it getting wet. It is very much like an image from a movie at the time, equating the lifestyle of the marines as something similar to the movies.
This poster is a world war 2 poster and was created by Sgt Tom Lovell who was a famous illustrator at the time. Lovell spent time working in advertising and illustrating different magazines. This is one of his many pieces of work.
