This is a extremely rare United States Marine Corp recruiting poster. The poster features John Wayne as Major Dan Kirby in the classics 1951 film The Flying Leathernecks. The role of Major Kirby portrayed in this film was inspired by real World War II flying ace Major John L. Smith for his missions over Guadalcanal in 1942.
The quote under the photo reads,“We’re being attacked? Well, first lets get all our planes in a circle…”
The body of text reads,
