I've never seen this recruiting poster on top of the helicopter before.

In fine print of course, is you get all of those things and get to see the world (Vietnam) too !!

Maybe there was an exhibit inside where a visitor could do this stuff.

I wonder if the "latest rifle" was the M-16?

Today, the gun control advocates and the peaceniks would have a hissy fit over a public display like that and say it's contrary to Peace through Understanding. :D

But this was 1964 or 1965. G.I.Joe dolls for the kids. Combat and Twelve O'Clock High on TV. Being a grunt was still cool.

Great shot, thanks. Notice on the Sea Hunt sign the spelling of comes, com's. Also interesting that in 1964 we see signs that say To-day rather than today.

Army, Navy and Air Force had exhibits inside. No overt recruiting, I think.
