"Outdoor Advertising: Korean Style"
"Marine Corps Leathernecks with the 1st Marine Division in Korea are subject to outdoor advertising of a not particularly persuasive type these days. As enemy positions are overrun, signs such as the ones in this photograph, taken by Marine Corps Combat photographers, are found. It's a new kind of recruiting for the Communist Peoples Volunteer Force -- but Communist recruiting officers reports are strangely silent as to the success of the current campaign."
Quoted from the original caption released with this photo by Commander, Naval Forces Far East under date of 11 May 1951.
Note the Marine's goggles and M-1 carbine.
Official U.S. Marine Corps Photograph, from the "All Hands" collection at the Naval Historical Center.
