Films by US Marines to be Digitized, Preserved by University of South Carolina

Decades of film taken by the US Marines is going to be digitized and preserved by the University of South Carolina. “The Marine Corps is sending the rare stockpile of films to specialists in South Carolina. Some of the images have been in storage for 70 years and offer viewers a gritty ‘you-were-there’ view of military life. Most films were not even seen by the combat photographers who shot them with hand-held cameras from the late 1930s through World War II, Korea and Vietnam.”
