The harbinger of Spring here at
Fort Jackson appears to be in
choate restlessness of both officials
and enlisted nersonnel. Already
the thousand-noted Winter sounds
are interruped by the dark throaty
rumble of trucks and the other
monster-implements of war, punc
tuating the great river of day and
night sounds with their consumate
call to the great adventure of War
games. Incipient and brief, the
late winter manuevers represent
the beginning of practice maneu
vers which will ultimately lead inte
the" great weeks-long Spring and
Summer War Games, in which the
Armies of the UnUed States, all
over our great nation, will partici
pate. For the benefit of those
"back home" who have relatives
and friends in the service, in the
following I shall attempt to give a
picture of army life as it is now,
and just what the soldiers here at
the fort are doing, .
A maneuver, which soldiers
coming home mention so frequent
ly and in such an off-hand manner,
is in reality a war game, or simi
lated warfare, carried out with
all the sound and the fury of the
it ia designed to ac-
a vo - -
quaint the enlisted man with what
may be expected 01 mem i
way of hardships in the time of
actual conflict and also to carry out
the orders given to them; further,
it presents the officers witn prob
lems Which have to be solved cor
rectly and situations which have to
be met promptly. The so-caiieu
plan of the days' action may De
-1ct imimnui and "naDer" theo-
ry; on the other hand, it may be an
actual situation which at one time
had to be met the story of a bat
tle which was fought at some time
in history. Then the reaction of
the officers to the present siumuuu
may be compared and contrasted
4.1 .tinn nf the officers
actuaUy at the time it happened.
At the intial point lor sianins
the, "aituation" is given
by "neutrals' who control the war
game, acung as umpires,
all officers on the correctness oi
mpptine1 the glV-
ineir cuiiiu"" ,
en problem they are faced with
and also in graamg me
regiments and command post men
on their actions.
The Waynesville and Haywood
boys in the vicinity of Waynesville
nort: members of
nre. lui ww i 7 ,
the 120th Infantry Regiment, and it
is the actions of the regiment wdxj-u
directly concern them. Under the
able leadership of Colonel John H.
Manning the work of the regiment
is carried on. Under the regimen
i.i nnst lint, no less im-
Wi CUlilliM" f 1 , ....
portant, are the three ftauauon
command posts, one ox w ma
under the direct command of Cap
tain George Plott, the popular
Haywood officer who came to Fort
Jackson last fall as the command
ing officer of Company H.
Naturally, it is not necessary
at all times to carry troops out
on short practice maneuver, and in
the last two maneuvers which the
writer was on, one of which ended
tAniT nftornnon. only a skel-
COKiuaf 1 -
eton set-up was made of about three
or four hundred men and officers.
Division headquarters, brigade
headquarters, regimental head
headquarters, and battalion head
quarters are set np on the man
euver area, often miles apart.
They keep constantly in communi
cation with one another, by means
of the latest equipment furnished
by the government, radio, tele
graph, telephone, and the "runner"
systemthis last being messages
carried by hand by special messen
gers who run between the several
command posts. In this way, al
though the colonel and his aides
may be several miles back of the
front lines where similated war
fare is being carried on, yet by
means of this communication sys
tem, and the maps before them, on
which the actual movements are
mapped as they happen at the
front and after his correct and
quick decision is made, see his
commands carried out. Also in
conjunction with the regimental
command post is the Intelligence
post, which men do the map work,
as well as scouts and in time of
war the much-publicized "spy"
this department of headquarters
keeps an up-to-the-minute map of
the ever-changing enemy positions,
as well as plots the position from
time to time of the regiment, and
in this way the colonel can see
what is happening on the front,
where reserves should be rushed in,
etc. ' in turn nassinc this informa
tion on to his superiors back at
brigade headquarters and division
headquarters, often many miles
back. .- '
There is an actual "enemy," made
up similarly to our "army," and the
problem tests the various abilities
and alertness of the opposing of
ficers, pitting the strategy of one
against the other. All this may
sound highly technical, rather
"mathematical" and boring, but it
actually is quite the opposite. The
"enemy and "friendly" planes
roar overhead, and. the similated
excitement of the urgent appeal of
the messages coming in, of troops
falling back, of wounded men, of
casualties, of ammunition running
low, of an advance. Dull? By no
In the foregoing I have given
briefly an outline of what generally
takes place, but for the individual
soldier, it means that we become
cold to the point of numbness, mud
dy, have irregular meals, often
cold meals, feel a tiredness this
not similated from marching for
miles with a heavy pack, but all
this discomfort passes away at
the end of the maneuver under a hot
shower, so that only the color and
excitement of the events of the
game are remembered. Back to
a hot meal, with perhaps a juicy
steak, and we know that army life
is not so bad. And the tired mus
cles, caressed now with the ghost
kiss of remembered weight, relax
in the luxury of a soft, heavy blank
eted army cot Even if you don't
listen to the radio soap-operas, you
feel that "life can be beautiful!"
But with the approach of Spring
to the South Carolina upland, there
is a stirring all through the troops
because larger maneuvers with all
troops out are starting. Next week,
while you gentle readers, are
glancing hurriedly over this, Com
pany H boys along with the rest
of the regiment will be "somewhere
in South Carolina" on the first large
maneuver since winter came. The
troops will probably travel in all
some two hundred miles before
coming back to camp, but this Is
only an official rumor. Definitely,
however, the first night we are to
go into bivouac near Camden, S. C,
and the people of Camden and the
immediate vicinity will be permit
ted to visit the army, observing the
regiment in action. It means loss
of sleep, aching muscles, dark fire
less nights, and .all the other dls-
