The Marine Corps Builds Men
Three Corpsmen with Captions Mind, Body, Spirit
Publisher: U.S. Government Printing Office
From 1965 to 1980, the US Marine Corps released a series of posters, including this one, which read “The Marine Corps Builds Men; Body, Spirit”. These recruiting posters sought to convey that there was more to the Marine Corps and men than just fighting, which was important as the American public’s attitude towards the military began to shift. This series of posters did well and, as many will recall, were featured in post offices and other government buildings across the country.
