Pictorial Report Number 24 - The Big Picture

National Archives and Records Administration ARC Identifier 2569616 / Local Identifier 111-TV-347 Big Picture: Pictorial Report Number 24 "THE BIG PICTURE" pays visit to "The Chaplain School" followed by telementary on preventative medicine -- This week's TV film presentation in THE BIG PICTURE series covers training and activity of "The Chaplain School" at Fort Slocum, N.Y. Here is the only school of its kind in the world where "Soldiers of God" train and prepare themselves for a spiritual mission of answering to the religious and moral needs of men of the United States Army -- wherever they are stationed, wherever they may be called. At the Chaplain School it is assumed that the student is fully prepared by his church for his religious duties. As the camera moves in for close-up scenes, television viewers will better understand the effort concentrated to help chaplains to supplement their religious training with the knowledge and understanding of their future military pastorate. For a second story on this pictorial report, Signal Corps cameramen traveled to another part of the world, over six thousand miles away, on a small rocky island. Here men are seen in combat; men fighting an invisible enemy -- disease. On the island of Okinawa "Keystone of the Pacific," a preventive medicine team, joins with other medical facilities provided by the Army to make the American fighting men the best cared for soldier in military history.
