their varied week-end exnpripnrpu
and preparing for bed. Thus would
end a typical Sunday in garrison.
Monday morning each man re
ports to his separate duties. First
call when we are in camp is not
until five-thirty or six o'clock, for
we don't have to start work until
seven. After making one's toilet
for the day and eating breakfast
and doing the "house work" in the
tents and on company street, the
company either as a body or di
vided into separate units or indi
viduals, departs for the work of
the day. A training program has
been prepared by Major Morgan,
who directs plans and training in
our regiment. This usually is
broken down into individual com
The most specific form of train
ing we do in garrison is to have
a short maneuver out from the
fort into the maneuver area which
extends about as big as Haywood
county to the North and East of the
fort proper. These are exactly
like the big maneuvers we went on
in Tennessee except for the fact
that at night we come back in to
camp, or stay out only two-three-
four-day periods, always coming
back for the week-end.
Or, for example this past week,
instead of a traing program, a
physical program was underway.
Air the regiment, company by
company, nad conditioning anus
for health sake and also as a dis
ciplinary procedure. These ex
amples, plus the usual inspections,
reviews, parades, and the like
which are continually on us when
we are in garrison, make up the
bulk of our activities at the fort.
