NEWS REPORTS AT FT. JACKSON
The first phase of the fall ma
neuvers is completed without
"bloodshed", so to speak on either
side, for the problem was over be
fore the real fight began. This
was a "feeler" problem, and when
the two armies Red and Blue
were finally arranged in battle for
mation, the results desired for naa
been obtained, and so on Wednes
day morning, ,the 120th Infantry
returned to its base camp for the
rest of the week. As always when
returning from the field, the rest
of the week was devoted to clean
ing up soiled equipment prepara
tory to the Saturday inspection.
Retreat at five o'clock has been
formal every afternoon except
Wednesday and last Sunday, It
certainly is Impressive to realize
that the entire group of soldiers
who compose the First Army are
at the same moment all over North
and South Carolina standing at
attention, and saluting -the colors
of our great nation.,
We were lucky or unlucky (de
pending on how you look at it) to
have been in corps reserve this
past week's maneuver, which meant
that for the most part we just sat
around and waited to see what
might happen. The 120th Infantry
did not come into contact with the
enemy in any large body during
the entire problem.
There were some enemy troops
in the area about ten miles away
from us, but these, like our own,
were merely detached patrols, sent
out to glean information about
the enemy. We captured quite a
few of these "scouts".

During these maneuvers, because
the soldiers are so far from home
and generally located in remote
areas which have very few nat
ural recreation facilities, Uncle
Sam in cooperation with the cities
of the two states is providing
transportation for the soldiers to
various cities Outside of the ma
neuver area. In this way, when
particular towns are designated
for the recreation of a particular
unit, then a uniform number of
soldiers are in each town, and no
one town is overflowing. The
120th Infantry has been given
Gastonia as one of the towns to
which free government transpor
tation will be provided on every
free week-end during the maneuv
ers. This past week-end there
were also convoys of our troops
to Lancaster, where the good peo
ple of the town had invited 1,000
enlisted men of the 120th Infantry
to a supper and street dance. .
I couldn't say too much about
the real hospitality these friendly
people are offering us. In every
town we pass through you can see
where so many citizens have open
ed their homes and clubs have pro
vided rooms for the soldiers to re
lax. Free showers, and places to
go write letters, etc., are provided
in almost every town. Great Falls,
S. C. is not a very large place,
but it offers at least ten such
places and also a lounge for of
For those who are hot able to
make trips away from camp, the
regiment purchased its own mo
tion nicture eauinment in order
that the men could be given free
movies on the field during the ma
neuvers. So far we have had three
crood nictures. Because we have
no electric lines, our own power
has to be generated on the field.
This is done by using a generator
attached to a belt connected with
the rear wheel of a jacked-up truck.
The whole affair is home-made
and the first two movies were pre
sented in rather an amateurish
manner, with occasional breaks and
interruptions in the sound tract,
etc., but" now " experience " has
brought about changes, so that
now a creditable performance is
given. The same amplifying sys
tem used for our church service
on the field is brought into Use
for the movies. This, plus band
concerts by our band boys under
the direction of Warrant Officer
Burt, will give you an idea that
we aren t exactly and entirely
"stuck" way out here from no
where, even if there isn't a home
in sight for miles around.

Don't forget, you folks, to ad
dress your letters to the boys down
. here with AFO No. 30', before
the Fort Jackson. Remember there
are already approximately a hun
dred thousand boys in our imme
diate area of Great Falls, and this
will be augmented until if the
address isn't complete, delays in
delivery of mail, and general con
fusion will result. And speaking
of letters, why not sit down tonight
and write that letter to the soldier
bov in the woods you have been
putting off so long. It certainly is ;
nice to stand at mail call and hear
your name called out.
That's all for this week, folks!
