13th Infantry

There is a short film clip listed on Internet Movie Database, imdb.com made in 1897 of "13th Infantry, U.S. Army, in Heavy Marching Order, Double-Time, Governors Island". Presumably the same outfit at nearby Fort Hamilton.

Guess what's on the menu

Do I hear Banjos?

Just Deserts

An old Army tradition, put the screwups in the kitchen.

E. Coli Anyone?

Evidently three military KPs and two civilian cooks, about to debut as a percussion ensemble. The unfinished siding and rough floor provide lots of great surfaces for harboring the various microbes that have traditionally plagued armies. Ah, to be young, sick, and living in B'ooklyn!
