Armed Forces Day, 1959

Linda Howe, 5, smiles a bit anxiously as she knows her image is being flashed on the closed TV circuit behind her by Lt. C.M. Rigsbee at the Postgraduate School. The display was one of many seen by thousands who flocked to military insatllations all over the Peninsula to celebrate Armed Forces Day on May 13, 1959 (Monterey Herald Archives)

A look into the future on May 13, 1959 is given by this Fort Ord soldier wearing the latest in Army equipment. His infa-red binoculars allow him to see at night.(Monterey Herald Archives)
