KP in the Army - tying the white towel at the foot of your bunk so that you get woke up for KP. Shep discusses being moved to a new camp, being the strangers amongst the other companies. They are confined to the company area for 3 weeks and finally it is announced that passes will be given. When everyone stands inspection Captain Cherry knocks the passes down one by one over a simple item. He measured everyone's arm patches. They were supposed to be exactly 1-1/4 inches down from the seam and no one passed!
