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:
Abraham Lincoln:

There is no grievance that is a fit object of redress by mob law.
--January 27, 1838 Lyceum Address

Don't interfere with anything in the Constitution. That must be maintained, for it is the only safeguard of our liberties. And not to Democrats alone do I make this appeal, but to all who love these
great and true principles.
--August 27, 1856 Speech at Kalamazoo, Michigan

Let us then turn this government back into the channel in which the framers of the Constitution originally placed it.
--July 10, 1858 Speech at Chicago
