Department of Defense 2020 Asian American Pacific Islander Heritage Month Poster Fita Fita Guard

The Asian American Pacific Islander Heritage Month poster consists of three versions, each of which is identical except for the individual depicted as the subject of the poster and the background support image. Each poster has an aged, buff-colored border. Version 1, depicts the image of a male, American soldier of Filipino descent with black hair standing on the left side of the poster. He is smiling and facing the camera at a slight left oblique with his hands on his hips. He is wearing an olive green uniform shirt, a white t-shirt, an olive green belt with black buckle, and green trousers. The soldier is Domingo Espinas Los Baños, Jr., one of the 50 “Hawaii boys,” assigned to the U.S. Army’s 1st Filipino Infantry Regiment. Behind Los Baños, and forming 4/5th of the poster background, is a dark gray, whitewashed picture. Brush strokes from a paint brush are visible upon the picture. The picture is of the “Hawaii boys” from World War II, and depicts eight members of the Hawaiian boys facing the camera. Five of them are standing, with another three sitting in the foreground.
