This is a beautiful color World War II "Get a War Job!" poster. The artist brilliantly captures the wistful look on the woman's face as she clutches V-mail from her serviceman and thinks about how to help bring him home. This is one of a series of posters that were used by the U.S. Government to encourage women to find jobs outside the home in war production.

The original poster was created by Lawrence Wilbur in 1944 for the War Manpower Commission.
