Scene filmed in 1981, at Ft. Knox KY, but those leftover WWII barracks were identical to Ft. Ord CA, circa 1969.

Placing 1981 in historical context, mocking the military (Mash, etc.) had been popular for several years, but Reagan was just elected.

From on old sailor, HAPPY BIRTHDAY ARMY!! :patriot:
There is danger from all men. The only maxim of a free government ought to be to trust no man living with power to endanger the public liberty.
Public virtue cannot exist in a nation without private, and public virtue is the only foundation of republics. There must be a positive passion for the public good, the public interest, honour, power and glory, established in the minds of the people, or there can be no republican government, nor any real liberty: and this public passion must be superior to all private passions. John Adams
