Postcard Dealer in the NEWS..

****

Michael Lee Lanning
When dealer Michael Lee Lanning is not buying and selling postcards (he will be set up at the upcoming Tulsa and Lenexa shows) he is a bestselling writer. Lee is the author of 24 nonfiction books on military history, sports, and health. More than 1.1million copies of his books are in print in fifteen countries, and editions have been translated into twelve languages. He has appeared on major television networks and the History Channel as an expert on the individual soldier on both sides of the Vietnam War.
            The New York Times Book Review declared Lanning’s Vietnam 1969-1970: A Company Commander’s Journal to be “…one of the most honest and horrifying accounts of a combat soldier’s life to come out of the Vietnam War.”  The London Sunday Times devoted an entire page to review his The Military 100: A Ranking of the Most Influential Military Leaders of All Time.  According to the San Francisco Journal, Lanning’s Inside the VC and NVA is, “A well-researched, groundbreaking work that fills a huge gap in the historiography of the Vietnam War.”
                        A veteran of more than twenty years in the U.S. Army, Lanning is a retired lieutenant colonel. During the Vietnam War he served as an infantry platoon leader, reconnaissance platoon leader, and an infantry company commander. In addition to having earned the Combat Infantryman’s Badge and Bronze Star with “V” device with two oak leaf clusters, Lanning is Ranger-qualified and a senior parachutist
Lanning’s  most recent book is the Veterans Cemeteries of Texas published by the Texas A&M University Press. It is available for order from tamupress.com, amazon.com, barnesandnoble.com and other internet sites.  A list of his previous  books are on his web site: michaelleelanning.com.

 

 

Texas, home to more than 1.7 million living veterans (the second largest number of any state), is also home to six nationally run and four state-run veterans cemeteries. Each year, more than 12,000 veterans are laid to rest in these hallowed grounds. The Veterans Cemeteries of Texas recounts the stories of these ten official final resting places for Texas veterans, creating—for the first time—a complete guide to these solemn bivouacs of the dead.

Author Michael Lee Lanning, a US Army veteran, has not only reconstructed the history of these cemeteries as a tribute to the fallen but has also compiled a useful resource for the living. Lanning details the exact locations, eligibility requirements, and contact information throughout the state for those veterans and their families who might choose to make use of these important public services. Richly illustrated, the book also provides moving descriptions of military burial traditions, such as “Taps” and the 21-gun salute, as well as information about the various types of military headstones (including sixty authorized religious symbols).

In the author’s words, “A walk through these burial grounds is a journey across the history of Texas and of the United States.” Lanning’s use of more than 100 captivating photographs, along with his compelling text, allows readers to take that walk through veterans cemeteries in Texas. For lovers of Texas history and military history, The Veterans Cemeteries of Texas is a gripping tribute to past, present, and future Texas veterans and the solemn places where they rest in their last formation and final parade.

Empie Kartoon Kards


Empie Kartoon Kards are one of the first copyrights for western cartoon postcards. Arizona's territorial native Hal Empie originated these designs during the early 1930's in Duncan, Arizona. 

You'll recognize drawings by Hal Empie appearing as as early as 1938 in such publications as Arizona Highways. Before Mr. Empie elected to devote his love of art full time to oil painting, his famous Kartoon Kards had become an Arizona legend. They sold throughout the world for over thirty years with wholesale accounts in 38 states. Original printings of the postcards are preserved in permanent collections at both the Special Collection Research Center at Syracuse, University Library, New York, and the National Museum of American History, Smithsonian. In 1980 a selection of Empie Kartoon Kards were re-publishd....available today!! Empie Kartoon Kard postcards have sold over 80 years!!!
