and a close up of the names of staff from the 68 photo album
any one you know?
Yeah, except for Kirkendall and Antone - who had left country before I joined the CAT, I knew all of those guys. Orosz, Rosrbach, Wickstrom, Kirkendall and Antone were the Division's first CAT, though from what I could tell Antone never actually "joined" the team and was more of a "contributing artist." A really remarkable draftsman, he could draw armored vehicles that were just amazing.
When I joined Orosz, Rorhbach were there, Wickstrom was really short and Sherwood was NCIOC. He was replaced by Rene Evans. Jim Smith came on later in my tour. He'd been at the French Fort before he came to us. By that time I was away from the Detachment more than I was with it, so I didn't know everyone as well.
The books are made up of a mix of art and photos that were done throughout the 9th's time in-country, so the list's of artist's and photographer's don't represent people necessarily serving in-country at the time the book was published. I have art and photos in books that were published well after I left. I even had sketches and cartoons published in The Old Reliable (the Div newspaper) in 1969, months after I was back in the World.
(As far as the jacket, this isn't the thread, the Mods have got enough wrangling to do... :w00t: )

I think I'm showing them in order. This one shows GI's crossing a paddy. I know this is 2/39th, though I'm not sure which company. The pictures are backstamped September 
Many of those photos in the "contact sheets" would be also quite interesting to view larger.
Thanks much for this thread!

(why one pic stayed black and white over the years while the others have gone sepia is one of those mysteries. They were all processed at the same time, but for awhile, I had the one of the guy running in a mat and pinned up, so maybe that did it, though it wound up in the cellar with the rest. Go figure.)
