About the book:

San Antonio, long known as the Mother-in-Law of the Army, got a similar nickname after the Air Force was formed. But San Antonio means even more to the military than brides. As the nation undertook the business of winning two world wars, tens of thousands of soldiers and airmen served tours of duty at San Antonio's major bases. Those times coincided with a surge in popularity of picture postcards, which uniquely documented the process. Large numbers were mailed to the folks back home.

Eyes Right! organizes nearly 200 vintage postcard images (actual size, uncropped) with explanatory cutlines into eight chapters: Fort Sam Houston; Camp Wilson and Beyond; The U.S. Army vs. Pancho Villa on the Mexican Border; A Recruit's Life at Camp Travis; Kelly Field and Brooks Field; San Antonio Aviation Cadet Center/Lackland Air Base; and Military Academies. Each chapter has an introductory paragraph in addition to the main introduction, entitled "Why Postcards?"
