Fussy Soldiers

I've loved and saved this postcard Drew sent me on Oct. 27, 1980.  I'd forgotten how in the Army some of us who were trying to win Soldier of the Month or who were extremely fussy would cut out the tops and bottoms of #10 cans and insert one in each of our trouser legs to get that perfect and perfectly fake hang such as three of the guys in this photograph accomplished. It was really hard to do it so that the bottoms of both legs hung evenly.
