With so many military units in Texas, parades are a common sight. The vast Parade Ground at Fort Sam Houston in San Antonio - jog around the whole thing and you have done five miles! - is the perfect venue to hold and practice these maneuvers. It was on these grounds that my Army marching career took place - both hour-long sessions. The Medical Corps is a breed unto itself! ;-]
