The following 4-part HD video in original film full size 4:3 aspect ratio with narration depicts the Redstone Block II trainer missile operation conducted by Battery A, 2nd Missile Battalion, 333rd Artillery, 46th Artillery Group on October 14, 1960 near Neckarsulm, Germany.

 

 

The following 4-part video, taken from the US Army's popular television show of the late 1950's, "The Big Picture", covers the events surrounding the launch of the USA's first satellite in orbit on January 31, 1958, Explorer 1 launched aboard a modified Redstone missile designated Jupiter-C.

 

 

The following 2 videos show scenes from Ron Smith's return to Bad Kreuznach, Germany in August 2009, 50 years after being stationed at Des Gouttes Kaserne in the city of Bad Kreuznach as a member of Battery A, 40th Artillery Group Redstone.

 

 

The following video on YouTube, taken from the US Army's popular television show of the late 1950's, "The Big Picture", shows the US Army Ballistic Missile Agency (ABMA) in the 1950s at Redstone Arsenal, Huntsville, Alabama; and, its development of the Redstone missile.

 

 

The following video on YouTube, taken from the US Army's popular television show of the late 1950's, "The Big Picture", shows the episode "Audie Murphy in Broken Bridge", of WWII Medal of Honor Recipient and movie star Audie Murphy's trip back to Europe in 1960.

I have set the start time of the video at 13 minutes 18 seconds, just prior to the Redstone missile sequence, where Colonel Joseph Harrison CO of 40th Artillery Group shows Audie Murphy a Redstone trainer missile operation being conducted by B Battery at or near McCully Barracks, Wackernheim, Germany.

We first see B Battery towing an uncovered warhead unit and an uncovered thrust unit through Wackernheim.

I highly recommend watching this Big Picture episode in its entirety (28 minutes), and particularly the ending portion showing various missile and rocket launches at the White Sands Missile Range.
