I'm the resident geek of the National Archives Still Pictures Reference unit here at Archives II in College Park.
During the course of my duties, if I run across a NARA holding and see it on a Wiki, I like to take the time to update the file information with the National Archives reference number, caption, and assorted other information.
You'd be surprised how many images on the Wiki system are held by the National Archives and Records Administration. In fact, I get about 10 requests a month for images that are on a Wiki, but aren't cited properly. So, if you take a NARA pic and put it on a wiki, for the love of all things holy, PUT THE CITATION NUMBER IN THE DESCRIPTION. Save some tax dollars and your government peons' already taxed sanity.

Please fix my uploads and let me know what I mess up. Still learning image editing and proper categorization on Wikipedia.
