PS Offers Retro PM & Safety Posters

PS: The Preventive Maintenance Monthly was created in 1951 by legendary comic book artist, Will Eisner, to help Soldiers maintain their vehicles and equipment to the highest standards by having the latest and most accurate sustainment, supply and safety information.

PS started as a digest-style comic book, printed and distributed to military units around the globe. In 2019, it ceased producing a cartoon-illustrated magazine and became a completely online publication and readiness information portal.

While the new digital platform allows PS writers to disseminate important maintenance and supply information (such as NSN changes) to the field much more rapidly, as well as offers new content and downloadable materials, readers definitely miss the cartoons. Luckily, the PS staff has access to nearly 70 years of archival art, which it can repurpose to reinforce time-tested truths about preventive maintenance and safety.

The PS website recently started offering 11-in by 17-in retro posters that unit maintenance and supply leaders can print and hang in motor pool offices, maintenance bays, supply rooms and other common areas where Warfighters congregate.

PS plans to develop new posters periodically, so check the PS website often to see if any new ones have been added.
