Description: 1962 U.S. ARMY vintage magazine advertisement "What's it worth"
~ What's it worth to feel like a man? - If you won't settle for less, the Army's the place for you - You feel like a man - when you can live a man's life, get out of the rut, travel clear across the world . . . when you can decide for yourself what you want from life, what kind of work, what kind of play, what kind of future . . . when you can do a man's work, put your mind and muscle into a job you can be proud of. - You feel like a man in the Army - because you can visit strange and romantic countries while you're still young enough to see everything, do everything, get all that travel has to give you . . . because you can decide your own future. You can get a good education, you can get training in your choice of many different fields. The opportunities for advancement, the chance to become a leader as a commissioned or non-commissioned officer, the retirement prospects ... all are better than most men think . . . because you can prove yourself physically, mentally, and emotionally fit to do a man's work. You can have the satisfaction of helping to keep America so strong the war the whole world dreads need never happen. - If it's worth a lot to you to feel like a man, we'd like to explain just why the Army needs you ... just how the Army can help you make the kind of life a man like you would be happiest in. - You can try the Army on for size . . . There's nothing quite like an Army career, you don't have to gamble years in a job that may not work out for you.
