One of many signs posted around Building 590 at the Oakland Army Base during the Vietnam War. Building 590 was used as a place were troops would spend the night before being shipped to Vietnam or stayed upon returning. Sign is made of metal, painted army green with the following stenciled in red and then black letters, "NO SMOKING IN BED- MAKE ALL FORMATIONS IN FRONT OF BLDG. 590." The exact same message is painted on the reverse side of sign as well.
