The Marine Corps University Archives Visual Information Repository (VIR) is the sole official USMC repository for Marine Corps film, slides, and videos.  It contains approximately 6,000 roles of 16mm and 35mm stock footage, hundreds of video cassettes, and over 50,000 slides.  The samples below are short .avi files, and as such their quality is inferior to the actual material.
