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.
