A soldier involved in a physical altercation - “You can’t fight in here - this is the war room!”
I went to basic and PLDC there...what a post! Good ole days of soldiering...
Generals are supposed to be in control of the privates.
“Gentlemen, you cant fight here! This is the War Room!”
I was inducted there, but took BCT at Ft Gordon. That was really my first taste of the Old South. And I loved it. The South, that is.

Well, Parris Island. Can’t say as I blame ya’.
Thanks for your service.
