THE 1947 - 1949 FREEDOM TRAIN

U.S. MARINES: THE TRAIN'S PROUD STAFF

The train and its contents were guarded 24 hours a day by a hand-picked detachment of 29 U.S. Marines who stood guard duty and interpreted the train's precious contents to visitors. They lived and rode aboard the train.

While officially identified as a military Honor Guard Detachment, these Marines served as the hosts, interpretive staff, and sources of information for thrilled and humbled visitors of all ages. Many visitors have clear memories of the sharp appearance of the smiling Marines in their "Dress Blues."
