If you are in the Cherry Point, NC area over the next couple weeks you might see something funny on your GPS. Check the PDF for a map. The radius of the area depends on your altitude but it covers ground level out to 50 miles.

The Confederate soldier was peculiar in that he was ever ready to fight, but never ready to submit to the routine duty and discipline of the camp or the march. The soldiers were determined to be soldiers after their own notions, and do their duty, for the love of it, as they thought best. Carlton McCarthy
