[Department of Defense] printed on it and Ameican flag themed underwear. Framing the figure is a life preserver from the U.S.S Missouri. Below the figure in the street protestors are depicted with signs promoting various social justice causes and protesting the military, the U.S.S. Missouri, and nuclear war. The cartoon appears to be signed by Hugh Mann. The bottom edge of the poster reads: "We Don't". Illustrator "Hugh Mann" is a homonymic pseudonym for the Humanist Party (sponsor).

In 1987 the Navy decided that S.F. would not be the homeport. [LMC]
