That poster was on the wall in my classroom, along with the one that said, "Join a Minority Group" and showed the beret. Now they're in a box. I need to find a place for them...

Great to hear from you,I noticed you hadn't posted for a while....... Where you on vacation or just taking a break?....... Speaking of posters maybe you can help me on a question I've got.....I have a large(regular size I guess)poster of every SF MOH recipient in Vietnam with their picture put on the VN background map as to where he received it when it happened......I don't know to reduce it so I can make it small enough to post,yet large enough to read........ Got any ideas?........

It's nice to be missed! I have been taking a little break, and was on a short computer/smartphone-less vacation. I took my life into my hands and drove to Puerto Penasco (Rocky Point), Sonora, Mexico. (The only deaths during the time I was away occurred in S. Arizona - where five unfortunates were found in their charred Ford Expedition in the infamous Vekol Valley of Pinal County - where the now-openly gay sheriff was once criticized for his border rants because his county was not along the actual border.)

As to your computer-poster dilemma... I've got nothing. I'd take a good photo of the poster, scan the picture, and post that - then one can use the "zoom" feature to explore detail... but JJ would be your best bet amongst us FOG's as to how to do it... or Richard - if he doesn't know, he'll research and find it... he's not lazy like I am.)
