World War I Recruiting Poster


Featuring President Woodrow Wilson's Executive Order of 24 March 1917 that directed an increase in the Navy's enlisted strength. The order preceded U.S. entry into World War I, which took place on 6 April 1917.

This photograph was apparently received from Captain Louis Sorcho, Submarine Engineer, as it is embossed with his name. In 1917, Captain Sorcho was operating a traveling "Submarine Show" to support Navy recruiting. He stated that this poster had appeared in every town since he started recruiting.
