Americans will always fight for liberty.
America calling–
Bundles for Berlin.
Every man, woman and child...
Give 'em both barrels.
He's a fighting fool–
He's watching you.
Put your muscle on a war job.
Someone talked!
Strong in the strength of the Lord.

He's watching you.
He's watching you.

Glenn Grohe, artist. Office of Emergency Management. 1942. 40 x 29.

The public survey conducted by the Office of Facts and Figures in 1942 revealed people misunderstood this poster. Some understood the stylized helmet of a German soldier to represent the Liberty Bell, while other factory workers mistakenly believed "he" to be the "boss." To control the form of war messages, the government created the U.S. Office of War Information in June 1942 to review and approve the design and distribution of government war posters.
