We just found this amazing 1975 National Guard recruiting poster deep in our archives at the Varnum Memorial Armory Museum. The caption at the bottom reads:
“You Belong. You and William H. Carney share a unique American Heritage. Like this Medal of Honor recipient and Sergeant in the 54th Massachusetts Colored Infantry Regiment during the Civil War, citizen-soldiers like you have been protecting our country and communities since 1636.”
