    George fought at Gettysburg......when I went in we had to DYE our shoes black, from the leftover brown shoes they had been issuing up until around Oct 1963.

    Dave, believe it or not we had to do the same thing in Jan of 67. Had to dye them black and then spit shine them.

    Small fonts,,,,,thanks William!!!!!!! and Russ and William, that's surprising that as late as 1966 (you are boots) you were still doing that. I figured they would have made the transition to black shoes by then. They must have had millions of surplus brown ones.

    Just saying, as Russ says.
