Text of sign:


A Good Duty Station


The lifespan of most Western military posts was measured in months, or several years. Accordingly, their structures were 

temporary, and many have long since vanished from the landscape. Fort Yellowstone was unusual because of its permanence and 

the corresponding substance of its buildings. It also bore little resemblance to older, barricaded forts.


Because of its good facilities, relaxed discipline, and interesting surroundings, Fort Yellowstone was considered a prized 

assignment by many officers and enlisted men. But protection of the park did not suffer. Soldiers were ordered to "conduct 

themselves in a courteous and polite, but firm and decided manner" when carrying out their duties.
