Memorial Day posters available for download

  • Published
Memorial Day honors men and women who have died during military service to the United States.

To show respect to those who have made the ultimate sacrifice for our freedom, two posters are available for download and display.

The first poster shows a joint-service honor guard carrying a flag-draped coffin with an illustration of the Airmen's Memorial in the background. The second poster features a grave marker at Arlington National Cemetery. A mourner has placed flowers on the grave to honor the fallen servicemember.

"I chose a joint honor guard for one poster because it represents all services and Memorial Day is for everyone," said Virginia Reyes, the designer of the series.

The work on the posters was more than just another job for Ms. Reyes, it was a way for her to show her appreciation for all of the men and women in uniform.

"Thank you for your service and for our freedom," she said.

To download the posters go to www.af.mil/art and select posters on the right side of the page.
