An original vintage recruitment poster printed on cardboard showing a confident woman in uniform holding a pair of binoculars with a shadowy male gun-wielding soldier behind her. For the United States Coast Guard Women's Reserve. The Women's Reserve came to be referred to as the SPARS, an acronym representing the Coast Guard motto, “Semper Paratus—Always Ready.”
