Photo H0022: SP/4 John E. Orey (left) and SGT Thomas Nelson of the 401st MP Company, 720th MP Battalion, celebrating their practical joke outside their barracks at Fort Hood, Texas in 1974. SP/4 Orey drove a fancy convertible through the gate with SP/4 Nelson posing as President Richard Nixon sitting in the back seat. The gate guard fell for the joke and alerted the PMO and Post Headquarters that the president had arrived.
