A great story about a cartoonist!

From Old_NFO comes the story of a great cartoonist. Morale booster to all the grunts. Thank You Sir!

He did stuff like this:
"Able Fox Five to Able Fox. I got a target but ya gotta be patient."


  1. My lifelong love of Mauldin began when I discovered a copy of This Damn Tree Leaks in my art-school-grad dad's stuff. (I had to read it surreptitiously because of the dirty word on the cover...)

    I have his wartime book Up Front, as well as two different compilations of his stuff. He's just incredible.

  2. @Tam, Old NFO introduced me to his work, I am Amazoning like crazy to get his works. Truly great stuff. I also enjoyed the Tabasco cook book from the Vietnam ere, I just don't know right now who did the illustrations for it.
