Trains carrying six million G.I.'s stopped briefly in North Platte, Nebraska, during World War II. Through photos and interviews, Canteen Spirit recalls the moving story of the North Platte Canteen, where residents of 125 Nebraska towns gathered to offer sandwiches, cookies, doughnuts, beverages, cigarettes, magazines and more importantly, an affectionate, patriotic sendoff to the soldiers defending their nation.
