In a neat twist to the "calling card" routine from Apocalypse Now, Rangers carried with them prints of jpgs of phototgraphs taken from the WTC site to leave behind on the dead. [url]http://www.cnn.com/2001/US/10/21/ret.rangers.photo.ap/index.html[/url] A very good idea I think...

I do beleve that is what they are called, yes. Coppola made a big deal out of it in his movie, and someone may have actually done that in Vietnam sometime. Dont know for sure how common it was to do that. In this case now, it seems a damn good idea.
