Staff Sgt. Trevor Goss, left, and Airman 1st Class



Staff Sgt. Trevor Goss, left, and Airman 1st Class Chad Erwin, 480th Expeditionary Fighter Squadron munitions section, deployed from Spangdahlem Air Base, Germany, employ a rim gauge to check 20mm rounds used in the F-16 Fighting Falcon during a Flying Training Deployment at Monte Real Air Base, Portugal, Feb. 4, 2020. This procedure ensures the rounds can move seamlessly through the aircraft’s cannon without jamming. During this pre-planned training engagement, F-16s from the 480th EFS are participating in training focused on maintaining joint readiness while building interoperability capabilities with NATO and other U.S. Air Force assets.

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.
