Object Description
Black and white wide-shot photograph of a banquet. There are two tiers of banquet tables covered in white tablecloths which run from left to right across the upper-middle of the photograph.  The tables are lined up end to end, appearing as two very long banquet tables.  There are both men and women seated at these tables.  The men appear to be in either military uniforms or suits, except for the clergyman on the far-right who is dressed in black liturgical vestments and a kalimavkion or black cylindrical hat.  The women are in dresses or dress suits and hats.  There is an area in front of the banquet tables, appearing to be stone or tiled flooring, with no tables on it.  In the lower right-hand corner of the photograph, on the ground floor, there are more banquet tables with white tablecloths and people sitting at them.  Everyone appears to be clapping and many are looking toward the center of the top tier where there appears to be two or three men who are standing.

Donated by Angelo Pappas. Members of 122nd Infantry Battalion "The Greek Batallion" commemorating Greek Independence Day March 25, 1943 at Camp Carson, Co.
