The war brought new activities to the youth of America, and one of the biggest and most popular was the Model Aircraft Project conducted by the Navy, in which thousands of Southern California boys and girls were engaged. These model planes were used by the Navy for gunnery instruction and identification. Here on April 28, 1942, is the model plane class at John Marshall Junior High School in Pasadena.
