    Not sure if you’re interested but I have posted pictures on my Facebook cover that my dads brothers took during WW2. There are some cool pictures of their Jeeps. One picture is from my one uncles division newspaper and it’s pretty funny. Your welcome to share them if you want. I look through this site every day and dream of a day of owning a WW2 Jeep.

    Gregg,

    I’m sure readers would enjoy that. Nice to see the personal connections with the photos/sketches. I went ahead and ordered “60 days in combat” as well. I particularly like the sketched jeeps.
