English term or phrase: INF at Ft
When I was 21 I was a student in college looking for something else to do. One day I decided that the military was the escape I was looking for, so I headed down to the recruiter, enlisted and said send me off. I got my wish a couple of months later and reported to 2-54 INF at Ft.

Reference information:
Hi Manar - Inf. stands for "infantry".
I suspect there's a name right after Ft. and that Ft. stands for Fort.

Check e.g 508th Infantry, Fort Kobbe, CZ
From 15 July 1962 until 26 June 1968, the U.S. Army stationed the 3rd Bn Abn, 508th Inf at Ft. Kobbe.. groups.msn.com/3rdbattalionairborne508thinfantryfortkobbecz/pictures?Page=2
