The original release sheet reads: "The Quartermaster Story" is an examination into the research and engineering program of the Army Quartermaster Corps. It is a program designed to meet the problems posed by modern warfare, and which is continuously affecting the way all of us live. Food for the space age is shown--a chicken dinner or a fruit dessert which tomorrow's spaceman will eat through his space helmet -- squeezing it out like toothpaste. Large or small, products of Quartermaster research are designed to provide the soldier with the right food, clothing supplies, and equipment wherever he may be sent. In short, there is no organization quite like the Quartermaster Corps of the Army whose responsibility includes even the design of uniforms, insignia, and our American flag. FOR MORE INFORMATION
