The First Issue of Military Images Magazine

mi-first-issueThose who you who have followed my posts about the MI archives know that the back issues I inherited have major gaps—entire years are completely missing. Frankly, I was surprised and disappointed at the situation. After my initial reaction settled, my history gene kicked in, and I set a goal to build a full set that includes every published issue.

Yesterday, I came much closer to achieving the goal. Thanks to a longtime subscriber who was willing to part with some of his collection, I added 40 original issues, including the coveted Volume I, Issue 1, shown here. Delighted to have them all, and am now will begin the process of scanning the covers and placing them in archival bags.
