good idea

As I am reading a book about the assassination of Martin Luther King I remembered where I was when it happened.
I was in the 74th army band stationed at Fort Benjamin Harrison in Indianapolis. Actually I lived at home and commuted to the army but that's another story. When all the unrest started the powers that be decided the Military police needed help so the band was to be used as a second riot squad. I am serious! we actually got rifles(we were all really qualified to use them) but affixing a bayonet to it and
doing that lock shuffle step was something else. After the MP commanders saw us"drilling" they then decided
it wasn't such a good idea.
