A color poster featuring an illustration of Uncle Sam standing at the center and pointing to the right with one hand while the other clutches an American flag that is billowing behind him. Clouds and surrounding scenery transitions from dark to light, moving left to right in the direction he points. Shadow images of planes are flying in the sky above Uncle Sam and a troop of moving U.S. Army soldiers are below him, all moving in the same left to right direction towards the light. Black text at the bottom of the poster reads: BUY WAR BONDS. Additional small text in the bottom margin reads: U. S. Government Printing Office: 1942-O-469201 WSS 510-B.
