Videos are listed alphabetically by title & topic first; story/content second...

Armor Test - Afghanistan - If this video is for real, then we are in deep trouble. Watch and see what America's finest does with its spare time in this "stupid armor test."

Army Communications - Vietnam - Originally shot by the Signal Corps iteself, this video tells the story of how military communications was organized by the Signal Corps in Vietnam. It's a great video as it pulls together all of the diverse elements of a battlefield's communication network, helping make sense of it all for those who only saw a part of the picture.

BBC - 20th Century Battlefields - Vietnam 1968 - Part of a BBC series broadcast in the 1980s. Provides an excellent primer on the progress of the Vietnam War, with details on several key battles. Great for kids, as the footage includes avatars of helicopters and troop movements; views more like a video game than a movie.

 

Korea At War - Filmed by LTC Kermit Parker, Class 12-42, submitted by Glenn Dean, Class 18-52. No war footage. Shows life during Korean war, scenes of Seoul, daily life of Koreans. Length 00.62.34 minutes.

Korea At War - The Summer Storm of 1950 - A Big Picture broadcast produced with footage from the Army Signal Corps, this movie tells the story of the early days of the Korean War. Originally intended to help Americans understand what was going on on the battlefield, it's a great video and well worth the time to watch. Length 00.28.58 minutes.

 

Military Memories - Part 1 of 2 - A collection of WWII Movies, submitted by Robert Oelrich, Class 10-42  -- Various movies produced by the Army Signal Corps. Length 00.60.17 minutes --

 

Military Memories - Part 2 of 2 - A collection of WWII Movies, submitted by Robert Oelrich, Class 10-42  -- Various movies produced by an Army Signal Corps Officer during WWII. Length 3.06.29  

OCS Class 16-66 - A superb brand new video slide show of OCS Class 16-66 by Myron Leski, of the same class. Myron's video runs some 47 minutes in length and is by far the best OCS school video we've seen to date.

Private SNAFU - Spies - An effort of the Army Signal Corps during WWII, the Private SNAFU series helped make sure everyone knew what was expected of them. The cartoons also served to assure that some of the good old boys that had spent their entire life on the farm before joining the Army quickly learned how life away from the cows, chickens, and Mom worked in the real world.

 

Taps As You Have Never Heard It Before - Video submitted by Candidate Roger Elsasser, Class 07-67; not only an excellent rendition of Taps, but one that will bring back haunting memories of your time in the Army. 

 

The Willys Jeep Story - A video slide show of the Willys MA jeep, with a few pictures from WWII. The slides run a bit slow so that you have time to read the story. Sit back and enjoy a few minutes of looking at every lieutenant's favorite possession: his jeep.

Vietnam – Know Your Enemy - Explains who the Viet Cong were, how they worked, and what one should expect when one came up against them in combat. Interestingly, the footage used to underscore the message came from captured video produced by the COSVN (CŎS-vĭn) itself... or as we would have called them: Charlie. The movie was produced to train new US troops on first arrival in Vietnam Length: 00.18.23
WWII Poster Collection - A collection of 74 of some of the best home front posters from WWII. Designed to rally the country behind the war effort, these posters are icons of the period. Some tell us what to do, others remind us what our allies look like (e.g. not mistaking a Dutch seaman for a German, or a Chinese fighter for a Jap), while still others simply try to lift our spirits. In today's world, where we are fighting 2+ wars at the same time, perhaps the nation could use a few 15 second commercials each day, to remind us that we need to support those who fight our wars for us.
WWII Rare Photo Collection - A collection of 18 unique, rare photos of combat equipment from WWII. Enjoy these unusual views of JU-88s, the famous 124 ton "Karl" siege mortar, Rufes lined up along the beach in Bougainville, and more. While looking at the photos, enjoy our specially scored music, created just for this video. And when you finish looking at these pics, please, take a bit of time out to collect your own best shots of your time in the service, and send them to us. Thanks.
WWII - This Is Your Job - A video training film produced by the Army Signal Corps about the Army Signal Corps, to give new recruits and the public an idea of what role the Signal Corps played during WWII. Length 00.10.13
