Dear Mr. Scheider,
Thank you for your posting your request on History Hub!
Please review the website of the United States Copyright Office for questions about copyright law and copyright status of works. If your questions are not answered by their website, please contact their staff.
Also, photographs of various U.S. Army activities dating from 1940 to 2007 are in the custody of the National Archives at College Park - Still Picture (RDSS). You may wish to contact RDSS via email at firstname.lastname@example.org to request a search for photographs of the 8th Infantry Division and its subordinate units. Most photographs of US Army activities during World War II in National Archives custody were taken by Army photographers and are in the public domain.
However, please be aware that due to the COVID-19 pandemic and pursuant to guidance received from the Office of Management and Budget (OMB), NARA has adjusted its normal operations to balance the need of completing its mission-critical work while also adhering to the recommended social distancing for the safety of NARA staff. As a result of this re-prioritization of activities, you may experience a delay in receiving an initial acknowledgment as well as a substantive response to your reference request from RDSS. We apologize for this inconvenience and appreciate your understanding and patience.
We hope this information is helpful.
