    WASSER! WASSER!

    When your on field operations even warm or cool water does the trick. I remember many a time, that
    I would let the water run from my lips, as I was drinking down my throat run down the front of my dusty uniform.
    Even in over 100 degree heat it did the trick.
    During my tours in Vietnam, GIs would improvise and make their own coolers from ammo cans with insulated linings.

    LUXURY:

    To a field soldier, having a lawn chair, fan that run off the battery of our armored vehicle and a
    tall ice cold drink, that was luxury.
    Another item that was always shared was the care packages sent by my late parents. It was a little bit of home in a far off land. Dad always sent me a box of Churchill cigars. Both my parents are gone now, but I remember them everyday, they were honest and hard working and taught their sons well...

    FATHERS LOVE:

    Before I left for my first tour in Vietnam, 11/67 my Father said to me. If I could take your place I would. Later in the field had to give my Dad credit he knew what I was going to experience...
