Notes
Content : The majority of images from the post World War II period (late 1945-1949) depict the activities of the U.S. Army and U.S. Navy including individual and group portraits of enlisted personnel and officers; American troops stationed in the former Axis territories (Germany, Italy, and Japan); and views of Army and Navy training centers and military bases in the U.S., with an emphasis on presenting the military's attempts to integrate its troops and the co-operation between white and African American personnel. Also included are some views of troops returning home to the United States; families being reunited at overseas bases; and medal presentations to war heroes. Activities of the U.S. Marine Corps are limited; the Air Force, Coast Guard and National Guard are not represented.

Content: Caption on back: "A dry run for a class of elementary swimmers of the 25th Combat Team is conducted by 1st Lieutenant Elmer R. Gray, swimming instructor at the Seventh Army Recreation Center at Ft. Barrancas, Florida. Troops spend a week at this newly established Recreation Center. Only two hours per day training in swimming is required. Balance of time is spent as soldiers desire. Facilities for these and various other sports are provided. Soldiers of the new peacetime army incur no loss of furlough time or extra cost for their week-long stay. 8/7/46."
