    Also not to be confused with DUTY SECTION where a certain % of the base had to stay on base in case the sh$t hit the fan somewhere. I wonder if they still have duty sections?

    As I mentioned in an earlier post, I served at the Philadelphia Naval Ship Yard from 1972 till I was mustered out in late 1973. I was attached to the Marine Barracks, Brig Section. I was wondering if anyone who worked the Brig, either prior to or after my tour there, remembers hearing of "Herman the German" and his incarceration as a P.O.W. there in Philly during WWII?
