Soldier In Hawaii - The Big Picture

National Archives and Records Administration ARC Identifier 2569621 / Local Identifier 111-TV-352 Big Picture: Soldier in Hawaii Hub of Army defense activities in Pacific shown on "THE BIG PICTURE" -- Although the islands of Hawaii have already had their share of publicity among tourist circles and travel bureaus, the Army Signal Corps takes time out to photograph in detail, and sometimes with dramatic impact, the picture of Army servicemen and women stationed in Hawaii. In "Soldier in Hawaii," the producers of the Army's six year old TV series examine well the varied activities and responsibilities of a hard-hitting military force in Hawaii. Ground forces like the 25th "Tropic Lightning" Infantry Division have been pulled back to Hawaii from more forward areas in the Pacific to meet any sudden emergency and be airlifted to any trouble spot. In an interview with Governor Samuel King, the role of the National Guard in the defense picture of the islands is spelled out. As an illustration of the above, the filming of these Guardsmen on maneuvers, simulating combat conditions, is particularly exciting and adds much to this THE BIG PICTURE program. In any mood, serious or otherwise, THE BIG PICTURE takes it all in stride and consistently gives a good show for its millions of viewers at home and overseas.
