Homeland security in 1942

Posted Monday, June 25, 2012, at 12:00 AM

Shortly after the attack on Pearl Harbor, guards were stationed at bridges across the Mississippi River, including the traffic bridge at Cape Girardeau. By Feb. 21, 1942, when this photo was made, Army regulars from Fort Custer, Mich., had taken over guard duty here. Soldier is Cpl. K. McGrath of Chicago. (G.D. Fronabarger photo)
