Burke's banner


Look for more of my Vietnam and Sixties era cartoons and photos in the months ahead.  As for the cartoons, I submitted several to Stars and Stripes and Air Force Times while in uniform.  Unless otherwise noted, the cartoon above and all that I will pass along in the future have never before been published, or shared beyond a close circle of family and friends.

After all of these years, maybe itís time I dusted them off and shared them with the guys I really drew them for in the first place.  There wasnít much to laugh about in Nam, but in the worst of situations young men like we were, somehow always managed to loosen up with humor in one form or another.  With that in mind, Iím wishing a Merry Christmas and a happy New Year to you, one and all.
