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.
"God must love the common man, he made so many of them.”

From on old sailor, HAPPY BIRTHDAY ARMY!! :patriot:
"Of all the dispositions and habits which lead to political prosperity, religion and morality are indispensable supports. In vain would that man claim tribute to patriotism who should labor to subvert these great pillars of human happiness -- these firmest props of the duties of men and citizens. . . . reason and experience both forbid us to expect that national morality can prevail in exclusion of religious principles."
George Washington

"Only a virtuous people are capable of freedom. As nations become more corrupt and vicious, they have more need of masters."
Benjamin Franklin
