Re: EpDis: GROPOS

The fact that the visit was "private" is immaterial. Generals are always making site visits, sometimes to get a first-hand report from the site commander. When a General officer enters everyone snaps to attention. That is military custom. A General might "say" he doesn't want any fuss, but believe me, subordinates will render the proper respect. Sheridan does it right in GROPOS when General Franklin came aboard.
