Summary
Covering the three-day demonstration of today's Army capabilities and tomorrow's Army possibilities, this episode of the U.S. Army's The Big Picture television series focuses on Project Modern Army Needs or "Project MAN." The project called together industry, government, and military leaders to display Army weapons and equipment being used or being developed. This film, from the National Archives and Records Administration, also shows Army Rangers engaging in simulated but realistic hand-to-hand combat, demonstrating climbing techniques, leaping from a tower using a resilient rope, and making long cable slides past large-scale underwater explosions. Viewers will see the film conclude with the unveiling of "The Infantryman" statue at a ceremony presided over by the Secretary of the Army.
