Department of Defense 2020 Asian American Pacific Islander Heritage Month Poster Domingo Los Banos, Jr.

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 3, depicts the image of a male, American sailor of Samoan descent standing on the left side of the poster. He is standing at attention and facing the camera at a slight right oblique. The sailor is Officers Cook Third Class Forsia, the first Samoan to be decorated in World War II after being wounded when a Japanese submarine shelled Samoa on 11 January 1942. Forsia is wearing the dress blue uniform of the Samoan Naval Fita-Fita Guard. The picture is of the Fita-Fita Guard standing in a three-row formation in front of a two-story masonry building at Naval Station, Samoa in March 1943.
