Lance Cpl. Joshua Svenson, a Hillsboro, N.H., native and geospatial intelligence analyst, sets up survey equipment at an overview position near a beach at Camp Pendleton, Calif., July 14, 2014. Marines from the battalion conducted a weeklong training mission at the base to test their ability to conduct hydrographic surveys beyond their home station at Camp Lejeune, N.C. They pioneered the hydrographic survey program, which is unique in the Marine Corps, as a way to conduct detailed analysis of beaches, river crossings, and other water environments. Their successful deployment of the survey program to California helped prove their concept has the potential to reach out and support Marine units in various training and operational environments in the future.

The objects in this collection are from The U.S. National Archives and Defense Visual Information Distribution Service. The U.S. National Archives and Records Administration (NARA) was established in 1934 by President Franklin Roosevelt. NARA keeps those Federal records that are judged to have continuing value—about 2 to 5 percent of those generated in any given year. There are approximately 10 billion pages of textual records; 12 million maps, charts, and architectural and engineering drawings; 25 million still photographs and graphics; 24 million aerial photographs; 300,000 reels of motion picture film; 400,000 video and sound recordings; and 133 terabytes of electronic data. The Defense Visual Information Distribution Service provides a connection between world media and the American military personnel serving at home and abroad. All of these materials are preserved because they are important to the workings of Government, have long-term research worth, or provide information of value to citizens.
