A proliferation of colorful recruiting posters emerged in World War II, with the Army targeting particular occupational specialties like infantry, Women's Army Corps, Signal Corps, Army Nurse Corps and the U.S. Army Air Forces. As in World War I, Congress found it necessary to instate the draft, as posters and other incentives were not quite enough to entice enlistees.
The use of the Uncle Sam image by James Montgomery Flagg created a strong and appealing poster soliciting recruits for the Army. This poster was later used on highway billboards and in edited form was used as the first poster on an express truck for Railway Express.
