The best series was the 'US Army In Action' series - you saw those on the walls of every Army unit, and they were fairly large in size.

They were the action paintings that ran from the Revolutionary War through Vietnam - and coupled with the National Guard's version of the same - make up an impressive gallery.

There were a couple of versions of certain ones, as well - the original-as-painted one, and the later politically-correct one.

I own the former.

Is there any place we can see them on line?

No idea.

They used to adorn every building the Army owned - in a couple of different sizes - even USAR Centers and Guard Armories.

The Marines had theirs, as did the Navy and Air Force.

The Center for Military History was the proponent for the Army.

My Dad ordered a set back in the 60s.  I think that they were about 17 cents each.
