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 2, depicts the image of a female, American soldier of Japanese descent standing on the left side of the poster. Her long black hair is pinned up, behind her head. She is smiling and facing the camera at a slight right oblique with her hands in the pockets of her jacket. She is wearing a dark olive green jacket, white collared blouse, and an olive green skirt. The soldier is Corporal Terry Toyome Nakanishi, of the U.S. Women’s Army Corps, Military Intelligence Department of Defense 2020 Asian American Pacific Islander Heritage Month Poster Service. Behind Corporal Nakanishi, and forming 4/5th of the poster background, is a dark gray, whitewashed picture. Brush strokes from a paintbrush are visible upon the picture. The picture is of five of the women from Corporal Nakanishi’s unit standing in two rows in front of a one-story wooden barracks. The women are in uniform and wearing their service caps. Corporal Nakanishi is standing in the front row just to the left of her main image’s crooked left elbow. (DoD graphic by the Defense Equal Opportunity Management Institute)
