The Canteen Spirit

2005 Rated NR 1hr

Carrying a cargo of more than 6 million World War II soldiers over four years, the army of trains that stopped at the North Platte, Neb., railroad depot found an unexpected surprise: Thousands of residents from more than 125 towns had driven miles to bring the troops sandwiches, cigarettes, magazines and moral support. This fascinating program re-creates the so-called North Platte Canteen through archival photos and participant interviews.
