FORT BRAGG, N.C. — More than 1,200 people are lined up outside a store at an Army base in North Carolina where former Republican vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin is signing books.

Palin arrived a little after 11 a.m. Monday, waved and went inside the store where she quickly started signing copies of her new memoir. She did not make any statement.

An Army spokesmen says Palin will not make a speech, pose for photos, or personalize notes in the books she signs at the on-post store. Officials say as many as 1,500 waited for her arrival. About a dozen people camped out.

The Army had worried the appearance would prompt political grandstanding against President Obama. That fear initially led commanders to limit news coverage, though the restrictions were later dropped.
