This World War II era poster shows a young boy with tears on his cheeks, wearing a Congressional Medal of Honor and holding an overseas cap with Captain bars. He has apparently lost someone he loves, possibly his father. Many posters were designed and distributed to promote the sale of war bonds during World War II.
