One poster entitled, "Let's get it over Quick!" printed by Carrier, dated 1941-1945. Poster features a soldier holding a gun and yelling over his shoulder. The poster reads in part, "Let's stop thinking of a long war! Let's start speeding up a short one!" It also reads, "I know that you're buying Bonds for Bombers, Bullets and Beans! I know that a Slow Mile in a Jalopy means a Fast Mile in a Jeep! I know that Meatless Days safeguard my Daily Meat from interruption! I know that the Coffee Missing from your cup is Steaming in Mine! But there's one thing America hasn't yet got around to and I'll tell you what it is... we're still waiting for that old-fashioned American "drive" that hits the line head-on and sweeps everything before it." There is also the text Carrier on the back of the poster in blue ink.
