We do not live by milsurps alone. Photography and other hobbies as well as the mention of other collections would fit in this forum.

Bought this photo off of ebay

Not something I would do generally. Never did it before. But what drew me to it was that it was a 9th Division Vietnam news media handout from 1970 that I had seen before in what was probably the last Brigade publication. The photo I bought even came with the paper taped on description of the details on the back....same as some others I've seen from the time. It was interesting to me because the crop in the magazine was on the sides to make a vertical image, while in the handout the image was cropped at the top to make a horizontal image. Also... the image was lightened for the publication...probably to bring out the face of the soldier more.

Another thing that attracted me was that I was in one of the photos in the Brigade photo magazine.
