Issue 1

The Weekly Kodachrome is now the Official Web Site of the 166th Signal Photographic Company / LHE
It will be used to publish information to better improve the impression of the WWII Combat photographer Living Historian. I do the best I can to give out accurate information and give the source, but sometimes I might get something a little wrong so please don't bite my head off. I am looking for any and all feedback. If anybody has any information they would like to add, just drop me a line.
