This vintage original and rare WWII poster was created by Nebraska born artist John Falter and issued by the U.S. Navy in 1943 to help recruit construction workers for service in the Seabees. Falter renders an image from the Pacific Theater of a strapping Seabee with rucksack, helmet and rifle slung over his shoulder flashing a confident smile with a large construction crane visible in the background along with text that reads:
Build And Fight In The Navy Seabees – Wanted Construction Workers – Men 17 and 38 to 50 By Voluntary Enlistment, Men 18 to 37 By Voluntary Induction – Apply At Any Navy Recruiting Station, The Army Engineers Also Need Construction Workers
This poster features the Seabees insignia and John Falter USN signed in print in the lower lefthand corner of the image area. The date 30 July 1943 is printed in the lower margin. This vintage original poster was never used and has no tape or pinholes and just light handling wear including edges slightly bumped in spots and small creases on the tips of the lower corners. Overall condition is very good.
