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: "The 343rd ASF Band, pretty girls and a Welcome Home Boat greet the last members of the 93rd Infantry Division who returned home from the Pacific on February 1. Leader of the Port's popular 343rd Band is Warrant Officer (J.G.) Fred D. Griffin who formerly headed the 93rd's band. The 343rd played with added enthusiasm for their Leader's old outfit, and the Pacific veterans who crowded the rails of their incoming transport enjoyed it. 2/7/46."
