Frankfurt, West Germany, January, 1957: Expectant fathers wait for good news outside the delivery room at the U.S. Army Hospital in Frankfurt. A total of 2,408 babies were born at the hospital during the previous year; a USAREUR consultant in obstetrics and gynecology estimated that 15,000 brand-new dependents would arrive at Army hospitals in France and Germany in 1957.
