The Eyes of the Division

A real find via Slashgeo: an internal document about the Imagery Interpretation Section (5 MB PDF) of the U.S. Army’s 24th Infantry Division, dating from 1963. The document’s purpose was to promote the Section’s work to unit commanders. It also gives a real sense of the work of aerial reconnaisance at the time of the Cuban Missile Crisis, when the interpretation of aerial imagery was very much in the public eye.
