One Army

Loading...
From the U.S. Army's The Big Picture television series, 1950-1975.; "On the front line--in the heat of battle--no one stopped to ask whether a man was a "Regular," "a Guardsman," or a "Reservist." Yet, this unity was never achieved until after the battle began. Unfortunately, however, each time a wartime Army was demobilized following victory, its soldiers tended once more to think of themselves as Regulars, or National Guardsmen, or Reservists, rather than simply as soldiers of the United States Army. As brought forth in this documentary film, today all the Army's components have essential, indispensable roles all the time. No component can perform its mission without the support and cooperation of the other two."--National Archives and Records Administration.
