yank magazine

I have 5 copies of Yank magazine (not a porno, it was a US Army issued publication) from May and July 1945. There is a handwritten name Lt. Breeland on the cover of a couple of them. They are very legible and intact but fragile and prone to crumbling if handled much. I am downsizing and have no need of them nor knowledge of their value. They were given to my wife by her former employer before the lady passed; they were her dad's, and his name was Colonel Redfern (I think he was in the US Army Air Corps, but I'm not sure). Does anyone know whether these old magazines would be wanted by a museum or anything like that? They have about a 1 week shelf life with me.

I think any worthy military museum, or the USMA would enjoy it .

The LT Breeland may be a relative of Eric Breeland, USA SF retired officer and a published expert on Quantrell's riders.

From Wiki.

"In 2014, the 1st Stryker Brigade Combat Team, 1st Armored Division, Fort Bliss, Texas, revived Yank as the official publication for the brigade. Each cover of the 1/1 Yank features Soldiers from the brigade recreating a cover photo from the original Yank magazine."

If true you could always reach out to them.

The South Carolina Military Museum located in Columbia, SC might be interested.

The museum displays a wide variety of historical artifacts from
firearms to armored fighting vehicles and everything in between.

It is one place I would like to visit after the pandemic is over.

They are really fragile. I'm not sure that they would survive being shipped through the mail. Even if they were packed to prevent physical damage, just being exposed to an environment that isn't temperature and humidity controlled might finish turning them to dust.

There are multiple entries on this title in the national union catalog WorldCat at the major research universities and historical societies with research libraries. If they crumbled to dust it is likely that there are lots of other copies still available.
