Thanks, Sar'Major. The first "field manual" I ever saw for the M-16 was the Comic book called "Sweet 16" drawn by Will Eisner. They were still handing them out in 1975 in the USAF.

Things have changed...

Was that the one with the female Steve Canyon?

Today she'd probably be using the men's room.

She had a pretty square jaw, but I'm pretty sure she could a breast fed Ethiopia.

Here it is in a page by page version. Produced in 1968, Eisner, who was known for his Spirit comic, among others, was a pretty well thought of comic artist. Kinda neat he did this for the services.

Mike, she's not as zaftig as I remembered, but not as manly either.

Besides, it's not her fault. She was just drawn that way. (Anyone? Anyone?)

I'd forgotten about Steve Canyon and the others.

I've still got some posters depicting oxy-fuel cutting safety done by one of the guys that did cartoons for Mad magazine.

And somewhere around here there's a video done along the same lines featuring Mark Lenard, one of the original Star Trek Romulans.

Exchanged some emails with him a ways back, nice gentleman.

bearcat6,

Fwiw, I once MET the "real lady", who was the "inspiration" for "Connie". - She was a secretary for a COL at USAIS at Ft Benning & when asked, she would autograph PM Magazines for GIs.
(TRUE STORY: An old GF of mine, who was a WAC 1LT at the time, asked her IF she was really that flamboyant shape, when first drawn & the lady answered, "Well I was THEN but of course I was 3 months PG at the time & 'those puppies' were really BIG." & "After I delivered, I could have wet-nursed the entire Infantry School staff." = When Delores recounted that, I just had to LOL. - FUNNY lady!!!)

yours, sw

I read every PM Mag I could get hold of. Seems like one of the HQ clerks had sticky fingers.

Yeah Terry, having looked over the entire booklet I can see that now. Even though we qualified with the M-16, we Air Force guys were never issued this booklet.

The image of the lady I had seen most often is the one on page 8, where she's in jungle fatigues and a beret, looking pretty studly. I see that she's softer and rounder in a lot of the other scenes.

You forget...I was an Air Force guy. These showed up at my first duty assignment at Warner Robins, late 1975. Guess they sent them to S.P. Squadrons because the M-16 was the daily duty weapon for most of the cops.

Comics aside, it was a very good little manual.

It really was. And if you think about the point in time that manual was produced and distributed, I would bet it was a pretty effective teaching tool

There were a whole lot of young men cycling in and out of the military in the late 60's-early 70's between the draft and guys enlisting in the USAF and Navy to avoid going into the Army.

I think they really had to gear training to the lowest common denominator.

What could be more effective in teaching a bunch of essentially teenagers than a comic book?

Especially that generation, right in the silver age of comics.

But to be honest, I find it quite effective today. Military FM's and TM's are dryer than a hot spot in the desert. It makes a very boring subject at least palatable.

She's still a popular model for the "Cosplay" gals who show up at Science Fiction/Fan Conventions:
