What you could try is to take the pic outside out of the direct sunlight and with your camera on a tripod shoot the pic. Watch out for reflections and if you are careful you should get a very good "scan". If you use a 7.1 Megapixel camera that would be a picture size of 42" x 32" at 72 dpi. And when you change the dpi to 300 that means a good hi res image of 8 x 10 for sure.
Well, I am back in business. I scanned the pic at 1200 dpi and sent it to you via your email address. Let me know if you get it. Thanks...

ps, the Brother is toast, some solid state devices are fried, and the whole mess is beyond my expertise .

Instead of scanning sometimes a shot with a good camera will give you better results. Meanwhile here is your pic after some work.

SSG, Being a grunt meant we didn't have to conform to strict military standards, like we did in the states. For example, it was a cardinal sin to "out" an officer by saluting him.We called our platoon leader and company commander by their first names, and every one had a "nickname" for use on the radio. Name tags and unit patches were also optional in my outfit. It mat have been different elsewhere, I don't know.

Bynx, the last time I had contact wiyh Ox(Sexton Johnson) was back in the '80's and lost contact after that and have not been able to reconnect. I have connected with three other guys I served with through Facebook.(Long story there).
I know that when wwe were together in Vietnam, he was from Skykomish, Washington. Maybe one day I will find him again...

Thanks for asking...
