Custodial History Note:Photographs in this series taken in the field by photographers from the U.S. Army, Navy, Air Force and Marine Corps, were forwarded to each service's accessioning point or the Joint Combat Camera Center, for a determination of the images historical value. Those images considered to be of value, were then sent to the DoD central photographic repository, and added to a combined military service, central photographic file, which was created in 1982. In 2009, the National Archives accessioned those images sent to the DoD central photographic repository through 2007.
