Colors on Parade, Camp Grant, Ill.

Description

Color guard in front with men marching behind and barracks in the background. On back: "Guarding the Stars and Stripes are these three soldiers as Camp Grant trainees pass in review during an afternoon parade on the south drill field. One of the two medical department training centers in the United States, Camp Grant is noted for its ideal location in the wooded, rolling countryside in northern Illinois. Here are trained the army's new soldiers for service with medical units at posts throughout the nation. In the background are barracks of the Medical Replacement Center, where are housed some 6,000 trainees during their 13-week basic training period."
