Note that this was artwork created by Flagg during World War I for use as a World War I Marine recruiting poster, and immediately after Pearl Harbor, this art was pulled out and used for this World War II recruiting poster, which was created on December 13, 1941 (the poster is dated at bottom left), which explains why the Marine is wearing a World War I uniform, which was no longer in use in 1941.
