"WHAT, is the paint still wet????"A new camp Commander was appointed and while inspecting the place,
he saw 2 soldiers guarding a bench.
He went over there and asked why do they guard it.
"We don't know, the last Commander told us to do so, and so we did.
It's some sort of Regimental tradition!!"
He searched for the last Commanders phone number and called him to ask why he did want the guards on this particular bench.
"I don't know, the previous Commander had the guards on the bench, and I kept up the tradition"
Going back another 3 Commanders, he found a now 100 year old retired General.
"Excuse me Sir, I'm now CO of your camp you commanded 60 years ago. I've found 2 men assigned to guard a bench. Could you please tell me more about the bench?"
