    Since the 4th of July falls on a Sunday this year, my church is (finally!) going to do a fairly solid patriotic service (past years they've acknowledged military members past/present, and done a special song or something...this year is going to be mostly patriotic music...guess they liked the job I did on last year's song). I run the video for the services...so I've sorta been handed the job of putting together a bunch of appropriate slides/images for the backgrounds. I've got two programs I use, one which can handle animated clips, but uses the same background for the entire song-file, and Power Point, which I can use to put static images (same words on the slide with multiple images, if necessary). But I need pics. Lots of pics. Flags, troops, little kids waving small flags at a hometown parade, tanks, ships, planes...and right now, especially, I'm looking for night-time battle pics. I KNOW I've seen images of anti-aircraft guns firing, rockets launching, etc in the dark, but I can't find em on Google. If anyone has some saved, I'd be very grateful! Post em here and I'll copy em, or PM if they're larger file-sizes, and Thanks in advance!!! :occasion5:

    The two songs I'm going to use static images for are "The Star Spangled Banner" (rockets' red glare, bombs bursting in air) and "America The Beautiful".

    RA, you are more than welcome to any that I have. Most of what I have in my photo thread is the best of it so just let me know if there is anything you need and I will send you the full size original.:thumbright: Oh, and here is a link to a very large US Navy Historical site.http://www.navsource.org/ There are plenty of action shots here and some are in color.

    I have shots of M1 Abrams on a night fire table. I will try and scan them over the weekend.

    Here's the one from last year. Original file is 10Mb, so I had to cut it up. If anyone wants the full version, PM me your email addy. There's no music attached, since I only had a week and it was being sung solo anyway, but the song is "Because of the Brave" by Garth Justice and David T. Clydesdale. I figure this year's presentation will be even bigger than 10Meg, but it'll definitely be available for anyone who wants it, as soon as I get it finished.

    BTW, DBII, I'd be very interested in seeing the night-fire exercises!
