Don,

Go to the troop photo you are trying to copy and click below it where it says "View Full Size". When the picture opens, your mouse pointer should turn into a little magnifying glass with a plus sign in it. Click anywhere on the photo and it will enlarge to full size. Now right click on the photo and it should open up a little menu. Click on "Save Image As..." and save it to your computer. Hope this helps, brother.
