V for Victory? Over what? If it was 1943, the US was still in the midst of World War II in Europe and the Pacific.
"V for Victory" was a rallying cry as much as anything throughout the war. It didn't signify a victory, it signified the fight for victory. Churchill was always flashing the "V" in photographs.
Note as has been mentioned in other photos that "The United Nations" here refers to the Allied Powers, and not to the UN of today which wasn't established until a few years later (stealing the same name).
