Kilroy is back.
If you’ve been observant, you may have seen cartoon drawings of a man peeking over a wall on billboards, store windows and signs around town this month.
The character is Kilroy, and the drawing was a popular piece of graffiti drawn by American troops in the Atlantic Theater and later the Pacific Theater during World War II.
Kilroy has shown up again, this time as a local campaign designed to honor veterans of World War II and teach young people about a significant piece of memorabilia from the era, said Bob Driftmyer, 9th District commander of AMVETS and past commander of AMVETS Post 21, Findlay.
“I’m sure everybody’s seen it once, but they might not have known what it was,” Driftmyer said. “We felt it was time to do something for the World War II guys since we’re losing them so quickly.”
