The Soldier Vote of 1864 – Once before, during a crisis in our national history, there was a Soldier Vote. Men of the Union Army rose from the mud of battle, cast their ballots for a President of the United States, and returned to the fight. Through the courtesy of the British Museum, which provided the facilities for research, YANK herewith presents an historical account of how soldiers voted during the American Civil War. By Saul Levitt

Air-Sea Rescue – When a soldier rescues another soldier under fire they may call it “unusual” and give him a citation. When the Air Sea Rescue pulls men out of “that old devil sea” it’s just another job. If you ever fall out of the sky into a dinghy in the North Sea and that magic black launch picks you up, just give a brief “thanks” because that’s the way it is — without trumpets or brass bands. By Cpl. John D. Preston
