Landmines

Today’s story on NPR about landmines in Laos reminded me of the U.S. Army’s distribution of a comic, Land Mine Awareness that included¬† a tear-out center fold one could use to flag or mark potential landmine locations.¬† SGM Herb Friedman (retired), who runs an interesting site on the psychological operations of the U.S. military during the Vietnam conflict, has some other examples of comics the U.S. military handed out during that period, as well as a nifty photo of Austrialian G.I.s stapling/assembling comics/pamphlets for distribution. UNICEFhas also distributed comics for children, warning them of the dangers of landmines, and the government comics collection includes them as well.
