YOUR FIGHT NOW!
EVERY one of you men 18 to 35 years old
is either a vital part of our war machin
ery, a cog or a clog in its wheels. There is no
middle ground. You either help or you hinder.
It is your duty to enlist in the Navy which
needs you right NOW and it is a privilege.
IT'S YOUR DUTY
Because the Navy needs you to help get sol
diers across; to get food across to your brothers
in France. They are depending on you for life
and victory. Are you going to stand back, wait,
and let them want?
Or, are you the red-blooded American who, see
ing we all have a. part in the war, will step up
and say "Here I am; I want those fellows over
there to win." '
One REAL MAN who enlists now is worth six
others who come in later.
IT'S A PRIVILEGE
To enlist in the Navy and enjoy its advantages
in quick promotion, and learn a trade while you
are paid well. .
Officer Training Camps are open to you where
in three months you can win promotion, pay and
a petty officer rank, that would otherwise require
2 or 3 years service aboard ship; It's a privilege,
a lifetime opportunity
Besides, in the Navy you are sure of your three
squares a day, and a good bed at night. It is
your fight, get in it in the Navy.
Ask your local board for a release to volunteer in the Navy.
Unregistered men, from 18 to 35 years old, enlist in the Navy
now, while you still have your choice.
JOIN THE NAVY NOW!
