In the US National Archives I came across these posters that were made by the United States Information Service in support of the South Vietnamese military.


“Helping the people in all of their tasks is the duty of the servicemen of the Republic.”


“Fulfilling military service is the duty of citizens.”

“What are you still hesitating about, that you don’t join the army of the Republic of Vietnam?”


“The military is the route to your professional future: driving, nursing, communications, typing, cobblery (i.e., shoe making and repair), sewing, printing.”
