Loading...

The Alaskan Scout and Alaskan Command

Loading...
From the U.S. Army's The Big Picture television series, 1950-1975. "A century ago, Alaska, our most northern frontier, was popularly called "Seward's Folly." The top of the world seemed remote then.

Rebirth of Seoul

Loading...
From the U.S. Army's The Big Picture television series, 1950-1975. "In Korea, the aggressor's challenge was met and turned back by the United Forces of the world's free nations. Yet in the backwash of war there always remains a second challenge -- the thousands of orphans, the millions of homeless, the countless villages and cities ravaged and almost completely destroyed.
