you need to lighten up, your father was honored by the original poster by showing his bravery and that of his comrades,and another poster has bought the book, he promoted the book here to aviation enthusiast, the pics ARE awesome, not tragic, they are awesome pics taken in tragic times you should learn the difference, they should be credited to your org there is no doubt, but it was a misake by a guy with no = zero intention other then sharing with us with no malice or intent to do you or your org. harm ,get off your high horse .. as to your "you should contribute to vets or vet org" for some reason it doesn't sound like you are a vet sir .. I am... .. Panama and gulf..in the infantry,,,contribute to vets? check .. i do that ,, contribute to vet orgs.? check .. contribute to military museum? check. contribute to soldiers home check, and VFW check all done and more( like for equipment and other wanted items to our men in iraq and afghanistan ) just last month. you sir are so blinded, that you cannot even tell when your father and his unit are being heralded by a group here that is very small but enthusiastic about the history of your fathers time.

Yea, you told a son of a veteran of the Air Apaches (The 345thBG). who you think you are honoring by showing images that were produced under duress and then shown without credit to the historians who preserved these images in the first place.
Real smart and like all who take without regard for others really dumb.
If you really care about others then you would make a contribution to one of these veterans or veteran groups or maybe even work with a museum to preserve this history in a worthwhile way.
These images, after all are not awesome. They are tragic and should only be seen as that.
To someone who sees these images otherwise, they are the ones who need help.
