"Army Strong!"

Type of Propaganda: Band Wagon


Intended Audience: Men and Women


Define: This is a recruiting poster from today. As you can see, it's changed a lot. It has a simple picture of a soider, of course he looks strong, but he looks like an ordinary person, just in uniform. I think thats really what the army is looking for today. They want everyone to feel like they can join the army, men and women both.
