The 1944 Army pamphlet, Pvt. Droop has Missed the War!, warns soldiers of the risky behavior they must avoid in order to remain a part of the US military.[^] The publication shames Pvt. Droop for acting dangerously while on leave, rendering him inactive for the rest of the war. The pamphlet shames him verbally, as well as through unmasculine depictions, as if to connect his discouraged behavior with his body type and appearance. He is depicted as child-like, with a large head and a small, undeveloped body. This unmasculine depiction is a stark contrast from the broad shoulders and bulging muscles displayed in most soldier illustrations. The name “Droop” is also loaded, and signifies a lacking virility and male physical presence.[^] Pvt. Droop was used as an example of a lack of masculinity, one that could be avoided by soldiers if they acted responsibly.
