Other then my own actions, I want a constant reminder of what the military means in our hallway. Something my daughter can look at everyday as she exits her room. Something that may one day inspire her to serve her country.

What poster would you recommend?

Why does it have to be military? There are many other ways to serve your country.

She could be a paramedic. Or a doctor. Or a librarian. Or a teacher.

How about just putting a sign that says you love her and support her?

That one always did it for me.

Take her to airshows and mil history museums. Places she can meet vets.


Some oooh rah poster is not gonna do it. Need living example

If I had a daughter, I sure as hell wouldn't want her in the military. I know what goes on....

I got autographed lithos of that from the artist. One for my Grandmother, one each for her daughter. My grandfather is on panel 14w row 120.

as the father of two wonderful little girls......i completely agree with this.
love and support, and a strong hand when necessary.

(brings to mind that song, "daddy's hands" - can't remember who sang it...

I'll give you a hint whose face is on there...

I do too... she can go do something else, the .mil would be an absolute last resort.

How old is she?

Guide her to the sciences. Engineering for example will be a field that will always need solid people. It's highly respectable and can pay extremely well.

Propaganda works I guess, but hanging posters and stuff like that around is a little weird.

Just talk to her. See what her aspirations and abilities are. Guide her toward whatever form of success will bring her happiness.

GunnyG posts a good bit––––so, there's a good military poster to stick in your hallway.

I bet he'd be plenty motivating!

MARINE CORPS BASE CAMP PENDLETON, CALIFORNIA (23 June 1997) — Capt. Sarah Deal, the first female Marine Corps helicopter pilot, flies a CH-53D Sea Stallion helicopter from HMH-466, MCAS Tustin, California, over Camp Pendleton while training during Exercise KERNEL BLITZ '97. KERNEL BLITZ is taking place off the coast of Southern California and Camp Pendleton to train Navy and Marine Corps personnel in amphibious operations.




Maybe something with Capt Curtis.

How about a picture of Combat Medics (plenty of women) helping and treating kids? Instead of propaganda, show what selfless service actually looks like, and how it actually affects other peoples' lives.

Yup, she's an individual. You pushing her to achieve *your* rendition of success will either ensure she rebels or ends up miserable trying to please you.

I serve my country every day and am not in the military.

I concur. If I had a daughter I'd rather steer her into prostitution. There would be less sex and the pay would be better.

If my daughter chooses to put her life on the line for our nation, I will support her but I'm definitely not going to encourage her to enlist.

Nevertheless:

Lol! I was raised to be a hippie! Look how I turned out!

Put up your moto posters, watch her run to the Sea Shepherd or PETA.

Seriously, embrace GreenPeace. Push her towards the Peace Corps. Sell her pony for half baked pipe dreams.

Yeah, better off being a high end escort/call girl.

Only when peace hurts do people see the necessity of war.

OP should begin dressing like this.

Yes. If you do your job there, she will tell you what posters inspire her. Otherwise you'll be open to the whole "like what my parents don't want me to like / dislike what they want me to like" dynamic. This is nothing against your parenting, but she is her own person and will surprise you with her personality many times in life.
Link Posted: 11/20/2012 10:40:06 AM EST
I suspect after two days she will completely tune it out. Takes more than a poster to inspire someone to join.

Rent "Semper Bi" and accidentally leave it in the DVD player.

Here's a thought, why not blow up a big picture of Dad or Mom being awesome and serving in some capacity.
