USCIS WWI posterEducational Poster Series Tells Story of DHS Agencies in WWI

U.S.Department of Homeland Security

As part of the ongoing commemoration of the World War I (WWI) Centennial, the U.S. Citizenship & Immigration Services History Office and Library has initiated a collaborative Department of Homeland Security project to create an educational poster series, illustrating the roles of DHS’s legacy agencies during WWI.

The five free posters in the series aim to raise awareness about the significant history and heritage of DHS while honoring the nation’s participation in WWI:

  • USCIS (legacy Bureau of Immigration and Bureau of Naturalization)
  • Customs and Border Protection (legacy U.S. Customs Service)
  • U.S. Coast Guard
  • U.S. Secret Service
  • DHS (summarizing the roles of several legacy agencies)

These free posters are remarkable resources for educators to help tell the story of our government's role during World War I.

See all the posters on the DHS web site.
