South Korea, April, 1958: "Goofus and Gallant" is a phrase that might come to mind when viewing this photo of two soldiers cleaning their weapons while waiting for their assignments. The 7th Military Police Company (Prov.) — the Army's first pentomic MP company — was taking part in the five-day Northwind field exercise, pulling guard duty and local road patrols with battle groups in the mountains of north-central South Korea.
