I used to work in Fort Huachuca, AZ many years ago. It's anything but green over there. Sage brush country is what I remember. But one restaurant was celebrating St. Patrick's over there too with banners saying, "Erin go Bragh". It was also in another restaurant that I ate a large portion of bison meat for dinner. It was delicious. For historical perpective, the US Army originally established Fort Huachuca to pacify the Apaches who were riding on a rampage in that land over a hundred years ago. Now the Army has a major communications command that spans worldwide. How that happened is still a mystery to me. Maybe Goldwater had something to do with it.
