    Cool Old "living" pictures composed of thousands of U.S. military personnel

    I just saw this on another website, and was impressed enough that I felt I would be remiss if I didn't share it with the Org as well. I've gotta say, these photographs are simply amazing, especially considering they were done without 21st-century technology.

    Wow, impressive stuff...

    The one of Arthur Mole himself looked the most realistic.

    You're welcome. Was your grandfather in the 11th or the "Big Red One"?

    The 24th Infantry Hawaiian Division. I have his division patch sitting next to me

    The picture:


    My Grandpa's unit patch. It's not the actual one. I got this at the military museum in Honolulu. I saw his actual one which is in good condition and tho a little tattered around the edges.

    All of them.


    Reinvent the British and you get a global finance center, edible food and better service. Reinvent the French and you may just get more Germans.
