KEEP YOUR HEAD DOWN

Photographic, terse accounts of various assignments that in their shorn simplicity are effective and good. Here is an induction scene, an afternoon of training at Ft. Benning, a visit to parachute training quarters, an evening at a juke joint, a Saturday night in guard house, rehearsals of This Is The Army, night alarums aboard a freighter, reconnaissance platoon outside Messina, mountain troops in Italy, a seven day march to Marshal Tito's headquarters, etc. Highlights things familiar to soldiers -- and of interest to people back home.
