Read pages 5 and 6 of a book on Google books "Armed With Cameras" by Peter Maslowski.

(pg 5)"...April 1917 , the Signal Corps became resposible for all Army photographic coverage..."

(pg 6)"....war time censors permited the public to see only the most mundane still and motion pictures."

Since the Signal Corp did all the photograpy then I believe all footage and images surviving would be at the NARA Archives or the Smithsonian.
