Shop Is Easy To Locate
OASIS — If an officer tells a man to get a haircut, he can no longer claim that he can’t find the barbershop," smiled Private First Class Robert Palmer Jr., barber for the 1st Battalion, 35th Infantry.
PFC Palmer Is referring to the newly painted red and white building which makes the barbershop so easy to find.
PFC Palmer decided to take part in the area beautification program. So he went to work and painted alternate boards red or white. The colorful facade indicates the building’s function as well as any barber pole could.
