This Army's "THE BIG PICTURE" (1950-1984) documentary episode covers activities at historic Fort Monroe, Virginia, Headquarters, Continental Army Command. Here is an Army post which almost breathes tradition and in recent years has become an attraction for tourists from all over the country.

MSgt. Stuart Queen, the series' host-narrator, takes his audience into the old walled fort, the only one of its kind in this country surrounded by a moat. It was in one of the small rooms of the fort that Confederate President Jefferson Davis was imprisoned, today known as the "Casemate Museum."

A standout job in photography has been accomplished in filming the interior of the lovely Chapel of the Centurion which serves as a post chapel. Hanging from the walls of the chancel and nave are the flags and colors of old regiments of the United States Army. The stained glass windows of the Chapel are dedicated to the military men who have served at Fort Monroe. On such a window is inscribed, "He died so the kids next door may live."

Additional coverage is given to activities of test boards in six different locales of the U.S. and the arctic test branch at Fort Greely, Alaska. Although old in history, Fort Monroe, home of the Continental Army Command, still plays a prominent and vital role in the national security of the United States.
