Ft. Monmouth is a likely source. I wasn't thinking that early since it 
didn't seem to be taken up by commercial vendors to the military until 
the late 80s that I can find.

I have orders for Fort Monmouth with duty at Ft. Belvoir cut in 1968. 
I've not yet been to Monmouth. Duty at Monmouth would have been more 
interesting, I think, and with no local chain of command I pulled way 
too much KP and guard duty for the HQ company where I paid for my bed 
with those chores. Promotions were also slow to come through. Doing 
engineering work for private's pay was not fun but better than being 
shot at I guess. A 16 hour shift at KP was the least fun.
