Pentomic Seventh Army - The Big Picture

National Archives and Records Administration ARC Identifier 2569686 / Local Identifier 111-TV-421 Big Picture: Pentomic Seventh Army Every soldier assigned to the United States Army in Europe is either a member of the Seventh Army or is engaged in a task supporting the Seventh Army mission. That mission is a big one--serving as a bulwark of NATO's defense forces in Western Europe, protecting the free world from any type of aggression. THE BIG PICTURE takes you behind the scenes of this mighty Army, and places you right among the men who stand by twenty-four hours a day. You ride with a jeep patrol as it checks vigilant outposts along the West German border. You witness highly trained personnel with ultra-modern equipment go about their daily routine of serving one of the most efficient and mobile fighting forces the world has ever seen. Then, a moment's relaxation is observed in the mess hall until the alarm rings! Within minutes you see an Army prepare for war. A Corporal missile site is erected, and a simulated battle is enacted even down to mock casualties. The Pentomic Seventh Army is a symbol of America's military strength overseas--prepared to meet either a limited war or a nuclear attack. Through THE BIG PICTURE cameras, one can share the soldier's pride and confidence for this great and powerful organization.
