During World War ll, the United States used posters as a way of rallying the domestic population to support the war efforts. Towards the end of the War , as the United States fought Japan they focused some of the poster messages on that war zone. In this image, the population is urged by the Anonymous artist to use war stamps to help build the new Shangr-La and its sister vessels.

USS Shangri-La was one of 24 Essex-class aircraft carriers completed during or shortly after World War II for the United States Navy. Commissioned in 1944, Shangri-La participated in several campaigns in the Pacific Theater of Operations in World War II, earning two battle stars. Like many of her sister ships, she was decommissioned shortly after the end of the war, but was modernized and recommissioned in the early 1950s, and redesignated as an attack carrier (CVA). She operated in both the Pacific and Atlantic/Mediterranean for several years, and late in her career was redesignated as an anti-submarine carrier (CVS). She earned three battle stars for service in the Vietnam War.
