The 761st Tank Battalion was activated on April 1, 1942, at Camp Claiborne near Alexandria, Louisiana, and deployed to Europe, landing at Omaha Beach in France on October 10, 1944.  At Camp Claiborne "its members were greeted by substandard living conditions, housed in the least desirable areas of the camp. They had to contend with racial tensions on and off base." [DiNicolo] Among the images in this slideshow are photos taken by 761st Veterans, pictures from the National Archives and contemporaneous post cards.
