Shoot Ships to Germany. At this Shipyard are being built ships to carry to our men "Over There" -- Food, Clothing, and the Munitions of War.
Without these ships our men will not have an equal chance to fight.
The building of ships is ore than a construction job-- it is our chance to win the war.
He who give to his work the best that is in him does his big as truly as the man who fights.
Delays mean danger.

Printed by the United States Shipping Board, Emergency Fleet Corporation. The war at sea was very vital during WWI, and the speed and quality at which our ships were produced were key to the success of the Navy, and the Armed services as a whole. America and Britain's naval power is evident from the statistics which show that throughout the entire war, Britain and America combined lost 181 ships of varying size and power to the Germans and Austrians who lost over 350. Posters like this helped to ensure the superior quality and functionality of the U.S. Navy!
