This only returns results from the directory: "dir" but I want results for all files in "dir" including all files in all subdirectories of "dir".
f in dir/*
do 
 echo File: $f
done

How can I integrate that with my loop?  This does not work:
find qqq/ -exec echo File:  {}
do 
 echo File: $f
done

for f in $(find /path/to/qqq -type f)
do
 echo File: $f
done

To display just the filename without the path component:

...
echo File: $(basename $f)
...
