'Award for Careless Talk' poster
Description: "Award for Careless Talk," a 1944 poster produced by the Office of War Information designed to promote a sense of common purpose during World War II and discourage unguarded sharing of strategic information. The poster reads "Don't discuss troop movements--ship sailings--war equipment," underneath a Nazi hand extending an Iron Cross medal. Posters like these, generally commissioned by the U.S. Government, aimed to show civilians how they could contribute to the war effort through everyday activities and aid with the allied victory overseas.
