Cpl Richard Stewart, US Army
After having completed Basic Training at Ft Gordon,GA, I was assigned to Ft Monroe to duty in the communication dept of the Hqtrs of Continental Army Command. Our billets were on the parade ground. I worked outside the moated area reached by footbridge. Once, during a strong storm, the water in the moat reached the paving of the bridge. I was not there very long but remember the fort.
