|MUD ready to go back out to the field|
I think the one quote I read about sums it up. A Female reporter asked one of the GI's what was the most difficult part of the cold weather. He said, "I Recon that trying to pee through 4 inched of clothing with a 2 inch dick is about the worse." That about sums it up for me.
I got used to the heat in short order and most of my time in Vietnam I got along fine. The difficult part for me was coming home in February to Fort Carson, CO. I was loaned to the Division Artillery as the Observation Post Umpire. I spent most of the last three months down range at Fort Carson freezing my butt off. I felt sick the entire time and little did I know that I had Malaria and the drugs the Military gave me were suppressing the symptoms. About three weeks after I got home from the service it kicked in and I spent most of the next month in the VA Hospital in Wichita.
So, do I like hot or cold best? I would say hot, but I would want a fan.
