During World War II pin-ups were a mainstay of Army life. Perhaps it helped keep the lonely GI connected with the “girls back home.” The subjects of the pin-ups were many.  Some might be a recognizable movie star like say, Betty Grable and others may just be a painting of some unknown girl–representing the “All-American Girl”.

Many posters and prints are available on-line.  Below is an example of just one of the hundreds available.
