Airborne Medic

Loading...
From the U.S. Army's The Big Picture television series, 1950-1975. "Film presentation depicting the airborne doctor and medical corpsman in battle, a team that brings new honors to a service that has traditionally been the best in the world. As the combat infantryman took to the air, so did the elements of supply he needed on the ground -- the quartermasters, the artillery, the medics. This role has been captured on film; the role of airborne medics in modern tactical operations."--National Archives and Records Administration.

Above the Best

From the U.S. Army's The Big Picture television series, 1950-1975.; "Spotlights the growth and military importance of aviation in the Army. In a half hour TV documentary filmed on location at Fort Rucker, Alabama, home of the Army Aviation School, viewers will see the story of air mobility in today's Army. The flexible, modern Army bears a family resemblance to the Army of 1918 and 1942, but that is where the similarity ends. Today, we must have a highly mobile, self-sufficient battle force. To control his widely dispersed elements, the ground commander must be constantly aware of the battle situation. He must know where the enemy is, and what he is doing. And, he must be able to transport his own forces to battle at top speed, at the point where they are most needed. It is here, tha [...]

Aerial Mobility

Loading...
From the U.S. Army's The Big Picture television series, 1950-1975.; "New tactical use of helicopters, equipped with rockets and machine guns, is seen for the first time on film as the helicopters move in and out of ground force positions, firing their weapons at a simulated enemy. Viewers will be taken on a fast-moving, treetop ride in the bubble of a helicopter as it surveys the terrain on a reconnaissance mission. In observance of the sixteenth anniversary of Army aviation, this episode shows the strides taken in this field. As pointed out in the film, Army aviation does not in any sense duplicate the tactical mission of the Air Force. It's function is solely to increase the Army's ability to win the land battle by increasing its mobility within the confines of the battlefield itse [...]

Airborne Soldier

From the U.S. Army's The Big Picture television series, 1950-1975.; "Traces the evolution of the foot soldier into the airborne soldier. It describes the various forms of transportation the fighting man has used to give him increased mobility and speed of movement ... It recaptures tumultuous days in the past two decades when paratroopers have been used repeatedly with great success in global conflicts and in limited "police actions." Credit goes to the men of airborne units for the vital missions they performed in World War II and in Korea. More recently, airborne soldiers were deployed in preventive actions and crises such as the Lebanon incident. This is shock action at its best on film for the Army's weekly television program. It is an absorbing study of highly trained fighting m [...]

Wings at the Tree Tops (US Armed Helicopters)

Loading...
From the U.S. Army's The Big Picture television series, 1950-1975.; "Above the battlefields of World War II, the simple Piper Cub aircraft served as an observation platform for the adjustment of artillery fire, and the concept of Army Aviation as part of the ground combat team was born. Since then, the aircraft which help the fighting man do his job have become more sophisticated, more rugged, and more powerful. "Wings at the Tree Tops" have given the soldier a dimension of mobility which his foot-slogging brothers of twenty years ago would have found unbelievable."--Wdtvlive42.
