Title

Typical Post Exchange, Camp Grant, Ill.

Description

With counters on both sides and soldiers at tables in between, this is the place for "a cooling drink, a smoke, a pair of socks, a bar of soap - almost anything may be purchased at one of the United States Army's Post Exchange stores. This is an interior view of one of the Post Exchange buildings at Camp Grant, Illinois, located in the northwestern part of the state. Soldiers may buy for their personal needs with canteen books. Camp Grant has 'P-X' or Post Exchange stores throughout the medical department replacement center and the recruit reception center for the convenience of the new soldiers."
