    Background: The 1st Battle Group, 9th Infantry stages a spectacular ski review for Secretary of the Army Wilber M. Brucker during his recent inspection of the U.S. Army, Alaska.

    Hundreds of infantrymen in "over-white" uniform, with fur parkas and wearing full packs stood at attention in an extended formation as the Secretary trooped the line in a vessel.

    To the rhythmic strains of The Blue Danube waltz, hundreds of men, their skis and ski poles moving in unison, pass the reviewing stand. Weasles, otters, M59s and tanks follow the ski review.
