The quiet of this dignified outpost is frequently shattered these days as the boys from the Gopher State, above, turn out and parade through camp with all stops open to attract attention to their new and gaudy uniforms. Like an Indian driving his first red Cadillac, they sound off at every intersection and by now there is not a man at Fort Greely who is not aware of the new trappings.
