Chris Harbour, a 21-year-old native of Marietta, Ga., a wrecker operator and loadmaster with Trucks Platoon, 3rd Battalion, 3rd Marine Regiment, work to repair a 7-ton truck while conducting maintenance following a combat logistics convoy here, April 5, 2012. As coalition forces prepare to transfer lead security responsibility of Helmand province's Garmsir district to Afghan National Security Forces, the 3/3 motor transport Marines are faced with a daunting mission. They've functioned in their core capacity, logging 20,000 miles on more than 500 combat logistics convoys while supporting 3/3's offensive combat operations and aiding in ANSF development. Simultaneously, they're supporting 3/3's logistics section in retrograding thousands of items spread across their 1,200 square-kilometer battlespace.

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.
