Saturday Evening Post cover, Oct 05, 1946.
Norman Rockwell's eleventh and final Willie Gillis cover for the Saturday Evening Post. Here, Rockwell paints Willie Gillis at peace with a new life as a college student under the G.I. Bill of Rights, surrounded by subtle keepsakes from his war days. By incorporating military souvenirs without over emphasizing them, Rockwell illustrates the impact war has played in shaping this young hero's life. Among the props Rockwell included are a patch designating the rank of Master Sergeant in the US Army, and a certificate of honorable discharge.
