The Company of Military Historians
The Company of Military Historians was founded in 1949 as an educational, scientific,

"information on the uniforms, equipment, history, and traditions of members of the Armed Forces 
of the United States worldwide and other nations serving in the Western Hemisphere."

Former Military Broadcasters Facebook Group
This is an "open group" site that anyone may join.  I don't know who started the group but the top photo has a sign 
in the background saying "War & Navy Departments" which means that it was taken before the division of the War
Department into the Department of the Army and the Department of the Air Force in September 1947.    

​​Hi, AFVN'ers and friends -- 

On January 23rd, 1998 the AFVN group on Yahoo began.  (Now afvn@groups.io)  We have been finding AFVN'ers and friends of AFVN ever since, and have had quite a few reunions that have resulted from these new and renewed friendships. 

It all started among an unholy trimvarate -- Jack Leigh (JO1, USN, 71-72), Terry Oliver, JO2, USN, 71-72), and Bob Morecook (SP5, USA, 72-73).   And from there, of course, it has gone downhill [uphill if you prefer]. 
Welcome home guys and ladies and to all of our friends who served overseas. 
Thanks to all of you who supported us stateside and elsewhere as well.

Best Wishes, Bob Morecook, January 24, 2013
