This poster design was commissioned by Abbott Labs , a medical products company that supplied the United States military forces in World War I and II . The text on the bottom of the poster reads "Published by Abbott Laboratories as a Contribution to the Treasury's Schools-At-War Program". This particular design emphasizes all citizens in the home front should bear their obligation to support the war effort by purchasing war bonds to help finance the war. In this festive image , the viewer is encouraged to think of what a victory parade might feel like by witnessing the celebration shown in the image. Note, the soldier holding his rifle aloft while dangling a captured Nazi helmet around his neck.
