Another form of military entertainment is the monthly U.S. military publication PS Magazine. Its purpose is to provide supplemental maintenance advice pertaining to vehicles, weapons, and equipment. Since 1951 it has appeared in comic book form with amusing drawings and stories to convey the information content in an easy to digest format. The cast of characters includes the tough Sgt. Half-Mast and leggy pin-ups like Connie Rodd providing advice to soldiers with maintenance responsibilities.
