Belated Independence Day greetings.
While the US did not join WW1 as a combatant until 1917, Americans made many contributions throughout the war. Some individuals joined the armed forces of other countries (for both the Allied and Central Powers). More helped the humanitarian aid efforts – with donations or as volunteers – through organizations like the Red Cross.
This 1918 poster is one of several designed by artist Gordon Grant for the American Red Cross. It is part of a display of WW1 posters in the International Red Cross and Red Crescent Museum in Geneva, Switzerland. A young woman helping a wounded soldier is a common promotional image, no matter the country.
Belated greetings, as well, to some recent followers of Great War 100 Reads. Welcome all! I hope you will enjoy my musings. Please feel free to add your comments.
