"Primitive Man"--a series by Major Ralph Hamilton (1918-1999)
Background: One of Ralph's cartoons served as cover art for a book whose title was that cartoon's caption: Be All You Can Be was the US Army's recruiting slogan for about twenty years (80s-90s). Considering that he was a major when he drew it, his irreverent attitude towards the military may seem a little surprising. Yet there are many military service members who don't appreciate their lives being casually squandered, especially when the effort doesn't protect the US territory and people, but rather the plutocracy's profits. Rick Staggenborg, an OpEd News author and producer of the blog Soldiers for Peace International, conducts an interview about Be All You Can Be here.
