Parade of Recruits at Fort Jackson

The military buildup of World War II greatly expanded the facilities at the former Camp Jackson of the First World War. Renamed Fort Jackson in 1940, the Columbia facility became one of the main recruit training facilities of the United States Army. This parade of recruits was photographed by Sargeant Studios of Columbia.
