and Ft. Lee gave very little time to wear civilian clothes. We only got to leave base once that I can remember. During this 8 week Quartermaster School, I, a 76 Victor (Materiel and Storage Handling) clerk type, but also FORKLIFT DRIVER ! (YES! and it wasn't pretty!) had already been spoiled in Ft. Gordon, GA. at my Avionic Special Equipment Repairer school (which I bombed). Just realized how bad that sounds, I didn't bomb the school, I bombed the course.
At Ft. Gordon:
- I could wear make-up
- unless one had "duty" of some sort, or a GI party to attend, once school was out, one was OFF!
- could leave every weekend and go into Augusta
