I guess what I was asking is  did you or anyone ever  have to go to a marching party.? it was two hours of intense exercise with our M-1 rifles until we were good and tired.

I recall the whole thing was over in a couple hours. We didn't do a lot of marching except in place. I stood fire watch at the 4050 barracks and remember the guards were mean and all business. San Diego 1968

I went to one or two "marching parties". LOL. I was at San Diego in '71. Does anyone remember what 4050 was?
