I just posted a reminiscence about something that I saw while on Lejeune, and it got me thinking about something else I saw on that same field op (I'm pretty sure it was the same one). I really need to get this out - it weighs on my mind heavy at times. I confess to Sgt. Borders that it was me and Cottman who killed that snake. I confess that we handed it to two Corporals (I can't recall their names), knowing full well that they intended to place it in your sleeping bag. I confess that we all laughed about that all through evening chow, and we drifted off to sleep giggling like little girls. I confess that we slept soundly until we were awakened twenty minutes later by a "mysterious scream" from two guns over. I confess that I almost messed my trousers when I heard that scream, and saw all the other NCO's nearly doubled over in laughter. I confess that I'm laughing still as I type this. I confess that I can still imagine the look on your face that I unfortunately never got to see. ...and lastly, I confess that this isn't really a confession - more like bragging. ...I honestly could NOT tell you however who ordered you all that Rogaine promotional information on that WestPac five years later when I again found myself in the same unit as you.
