Published by the United States Government Printing Office Interpretation This poster, issued by the United States government during World War II, is a warning to citizens that discussing troop movements, or other military information that might be useful to the enemy, could have serious consequences. The Service Flag hanging on the wall symbolizes the gravity of "loose talk". The single star on this flag indicates that the family has one member in the armed forces. Initially the star would have been blue, but it has been replaced with a gold star. The gold star indicates that this person has died in the service of his or her country during the war (possibly due to "loose talk"). Publisher: [Washington, D.C.]: U. S.
