YUP, THATS THE ONE. I HAVE A GOOD ONE OF THAT FRAMED.
The only pic I have of Audie in a frame is my #1 favorite:

It is an original 5x7 that I got back in '61 or '62 while still in Denmark. The printing and the stamp on the back is in French. It is my pride and joy.
Out of all the several thousand pics I have of Audie it is my absolute favorite. Took some doing to get the original out of the newspaper archive back home, but I managed.
Had to do some eyelash-batting and a bit of behind-kissing to get it too.
They were willing to have a copy made for me, but only the original would do!
When I was working with the AMRF I gave Terry, Larryann, Stan, and Richard, and I think Sue, good copies of it, since neither Terry nor Larryann had ever seen it before. It was used in an issue of the AMRF newsletter and elsewhere since then. I think (though I can't swear to it) that the pic on the Audie Days poster was from a copy of my pic. At least the time frame fits.
The frame is a VERY NICE filigree brass frame; a present from my mother, and the only time the pic was ever out of the frame was when I scanned it and had the copies made. One of these days I'll have to get a pic of it in the frame to share with y'all. I wonder if it would scan; frame and all?
