The AMERICANS SUFFER WHEN CARELESS TALK KILLS! WW2 poster shows grieving parents standing in front of a Blue Star Service Flag to remind the public that careless talk can kill American Service men. Art by Harry Anderson.
The service flag is authorized by the Department of Defense for display by families who have members serving in the military. The banner was designed in 1917 by Army Captain Robert L. Queisser of the Fifth Ohio Infantry in honor of his two sons serving in World War I.
