战后,他专门为美国军队检验肉食并且在军队的肉桶上都印有EAUS的标识,EA代表公司名称,US代表原产品。据说纽约州长带领一
些官员参观工厂,问到这几个字母的含义,一位想象丰富的雇员告诉
他,US是“山姆大叔”<Uncle Sam> 威尔逊的缩写。不久,士兵们
都说所有的军需都来自“山姆大叔”。

The most enduring portrait of Uncle Sam was
created by artist James Montgomery Flagg .That

white beard on his chin,a dark blue coat and a
tall hat with stars on it –was a self-portrait of Flagg.
