Pocatello Army Air Base in Idaho is featured on this "Large Letters" picture postcard which were sold in the Army Post Exchange (P.X.) to soldiers who mailed them to their kith and kin. This card is very crisp and the colour looks as though the card is still mint condition. :rolleyes: I email scans of these at: [email protected] to anyone who wants free email scans on a daily basis, contact me if you'd like to be added to the list to get pictures like these and other ephemera. I do not want anything in return, it is a public service to fellow collectors who already pay way too much too often, sad to say! :rolleyes: Respectfully yours, Sarge Booker of Tujunga, California (POST SCRIPT: Add your favourites here as well!) :rolleyes:
