As to what made the campaign itself so successful, a whole lot had to do with the truth that the U.S. government was behind it. The us government had the power to put this poster in each and every post office and public building in the nation. It was also instituted within a time of war. Thus, there is already a favorite mood which supported the sentiment with the poster - the concept that all Americans required to step up and serve their country these days of crisis.
