My team sergeant in Germany drilled this into us (building clearing):

From the old days...

Does anyone know who coined and when "Join a minority group"
Also, does anyone have a pic of the scuba poster?

Mid-70's... one night, we were part of an MP gun jeep detail escorting a detachment to the ISOFAC. When we were done, we swung by the row of 82d barracks, parked and flipped on the blue lights...
