Dear Mr. Belena,
There is a series of YANK - The Army Newspaper (also sometimes referred to as The Army Magazine and The Army Weekly) in the National Archives’ Publications of the U.S. Government (Record Group 287). The series (Entry UD 439) is located at the National Archives in College Park, MD, and consists of 28 boxes. The records are arranged by edition and thereunder chronologically. Editions include Home Front, British, Continental, European, Far East, Mediterranean, Middle East, Pacific, and Pan-American. The dates covered vary by edition, but they range from as early as June 1942 to as late as December 1945.
We located several other series that also contain various editions of YANK. You can find more information about them in the National Archives’ Catalog at these links:

Thank you for submitting your question to the History Hub, and best of luck with your search.
Thank you for the great information. I've reached out to the US Army Heritage as Daria suggested and I will check the RGs you listed. As for the digitized versions from those web sites: they are all from the same source but have been shared (some have made their way onto the Internet Archive and to EBay.) The scans are of the poorest quality and many of them are illegible. I am looking for the cleanest scans or printed copies as possible.
