I've put my google-fu to work and searched all of my squadron's own photos and I can't find what I need.  I'm looking for a hi resolution photo of a CAP ground team working in the field (doing a line search, carrying a litter, etc).  We're in the process of building a new website for my squadron.  I have graphics for everything I need except ES.

The photos need to be in a landscape orientation, and high enough resolution that when cropped will still look crystal at 13in x 4.5in (936px x 320px).  I've attached a couple of the photos I have already to give an example of what I'm looking for.  Keep in mind they were cropped from larger photos and still retained their clarity.

When posted here, the forum has reduced the picture size by about 25%.  Click them to see full size.

Have you tried the NESA Flickr site? They post each year's photos, and usually in high Rez.

This is DR but I'm particularly fond of it because its in my hometown with a cadet from the squadron I started in (whoever tagged this wasn't paying attention - that was tornado damage and I clearly remember hiding from them in the bathtub):

I can't fix all of CAP's problems, but I can lead from the bottom by building my squadron as a center of excellence to serve as an example of what every unit can be.

That would be -then-  C/Maj Steven Godar who was also -then- an SrA of the IL Air Guard... who was doing DR in Springfield IL... back in 2005 I think... after an F-3  tornado destroyed about 1/4 of the city.

Yup. I joined as a cadet that same year - in fact, it might even have been around the same month or so.

Well, its not what i was hoping to find but I pulled a photo from CAP's flicker and made it work.  I'll have to borrow our PA's fancy schmancy camera next summer and start snapping a portfolio of GT pics.

Not real modern but it brings back some good Ground Team memories. Taken at GLR SARCOMP in 1988 when IL won the competition. That's me second from the right.
