In this, our 70th year, it’s amazing to realize the impact PS Magazine has had over seven decades and how often Soldiers have held on to copies as a keepsake from their time of service.

ROCK ISLAND ARSENAL, Ill. - In Dec 2020, we received a small parcel from a Tom Mendel of Kempner, TX. Inside was a rare 1st Edition of PS Magazine. Uncertain who Mr. Mendel was but deeply thankful for his gift, we sent a thank you note. A few months later, we heard from his son, CAPT John Mendel, US Navy (Ret), who informed us that in Jan 2021, LTC (Ret) Thomas Mendel unexpectedly passed away. He was 92 years old.
