German posters advertising for recruits to the new Bundeswehr and Luftwaffe

In July 1955, the law on the recruitment of military volunteers (Freiwilligengesetz) is adopted by the Bundestag, laying the foundations for the enlistment of the first military volunteers in the Federal Republic of Germany (FRG). The new German Federal Army, known as the Bundeswehr from 1956, and the air force, the Luftwaffe, publish posters to recruit their first members.
