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: "It was in the early morning when the last contingent of Negro WACs to return from the ETO debarked at the Staten Island Terminal, New York Port installation, but the Red Cross was on hand as usual with doughnuts and coffee. Above Private First Class Thelma Duncan, Akron, Ohio, gets a refill while other Wacs enjoy their steaming cups and doughnuts. The Wacs comprised the last detachment of the 6888th Central Postal Directory. 3/13/46."
