Support if you will (6" x 9" books to fit backpacks)

I've been involved the last few months in the production of these two pinup books. Read about them here www.forthetroopsonline.com

Cover for Gals book was awarded to me. 10 images in guys book, 4-5 images in gals book.

Thanks to all models, MUA and Photographers involved.

Mike

I thought that kind of material wasn't allowed over there due to the religious restrictions of the country.

Being an active duty member (though not currently in OIF operations) I would want to see more images than you are offering especially if there is a cost involved.
The Armed Forces is a eclectic bunch these days and (since I only could view one pic) hope you included some diversity in your images.
I do like your nostalgia for the images to be recreated, I think you did a pretty good job.

I uploaded sample images used for the book in my port.

Books can be sent to any US member, not just oversea units.

Great work, as always! But, I don't know if this is such a good idea these days, Mike. I just retired from 27 years with the DoD, and the PC environment there is just unbelievable. Our Physical Training Department was charged with sexual harrassment for having an instructional poster with a picture of a female in gym shorts supplied by Nautilis posted next to a workout machine. You'd have to be there to believe it. I could see these booklets used as fodder for a myrid of sexual harassment career-busting charges. Just my opinion, others may disagree.

Mike, I don't think it is about the images, though I am sure they are beautiful. It is about showing some level of support for the troops. I personally think it a great effort on your part and the others involved. As a veteran of combat, Vietnam, I can assure you that those sort of items from home are treasured. It isn't pronography. It is a resurrection of an American icon, the pinup. Sexy, teasy, but dressed. Norman Rockwell had a few for God's sake.

Congratulations to you and the members. I will be ordering one, and if it is shared by a whole platoon, mo' betta. If they read it behind the M-60, nobody will argue about it!
