Description

Military images created by soldiers on their duty are public domain in the Unitied States. I would have uploaded the following image from its URL:

https://www.army.mil/article/154048/12th_combat_aviation_brigade_receives_brand_new_ch_47f_myii_chinooks
https://www.army.mil/e2/c/images/2015/08/24/406939/original.jpg

It is already present on Commons; I was about to replace a version:

Do you plan to upload a set of images with the GLAM tool? This isn't for one-time whitelisting.

Oh, there needs to be an ongoing need by the person opening the request? I was actually just uploading one single image from there and wondered why it isn't on the whitelist. Based on the current size of the whitelist, I didn't expect current need to be a requirement; I clicked the link provided on the whitelist page because I felt that one of the most copyright-safe sources in the US is missing from the list.

If current/ongoing usage is required, the list might need a cleanup, and the page might need a clarification of this. :)
