    For Action- Enlist in the Air Service 25" x 19" Artist: Otho Cushing. Printed for the Army Air Service. This poster again features the Army Air Service; a small and lesser known unit in the Army. These types of posters are very scarce and prized in the collectibles community. During World War I, aerial combat and fighting was a new idea, and seemed very foreign to most people. One way to attract soldiers to this unit was to create a poster which showed the intensity and power of the United States Air Service. This poster did just that.When World War I began the Air Service consisted of, "12 officers, 54 enlisted men and six aircraft." A fantastic poster for a little known unit which would one day grow into one of the greatest air powers in the world. Condition-Good; cockling from severe fold memory, hard crease down y-axis, dirt stains and residue on upper corners.
