  • Description

    High ranking officers of the United States Navy and Marine Corps gather at Camp Lejeune, North Carolina, to see the latest in Navy and Marine Corps equipment and hardware in action.

    Marines lay down a Short Expeditionary Landing Field (SELF) which is in effect a duplicate of an aircraft carrier flight deck. Ready for operation within 72 hours after the start of construction, this tactical field can handle the most modern jet aircraft.

    The jets need assist rockets for takeoffs from the short field, but landings are made easy by using the arresting gear and "meatball" mirror system that is standard on board Navy carriers.

    Napalm crops and Bullpup, Zuni and other missiles soften up enemy positions before the ground troops move in.
