Lead: For 400 years service men and women have fought to carve out and defend freedom and the civilization we know as America. This series on A Moment in Time is devoted to the memory of those warriors, whose devotion gave, in the words of Lincoln at Gettysburg, the last full measure.

Content: Some of the most compelling photographs to emerge from World War II were the images of Margaret Bourke-White, a woman who became used to breaking down barriers erected to keep women out. Her unconventional early career photos of industrial plants and architectural designs would have been innovative for anyone, but for a woman photographer, they were ground-breaking, not because of an absence of female talent, but because this was a field that required years of professional practice to achieve a superior insight into subject matter, angle, and lighting. In the early 20th century it was a vocation inhabited almost exclusively by men.
