Latrine Duty

Deborah Hendrick on Sunday, February 26th, 2006

“Private Hickman!” Captain thundered, “You have spent more time burning latrines since you’ve been in-country than you ever did carrying a gun on patrol. I never saw a bigger screw-up than you, and I thought I’d seen em all. Gunny here wants me to send you to the stockade forever. What in hell are you gonna tell your kids someday when they ask what you did in Vietnam?”

“Sir, Captain, Sir! I’m gonna tell ’em I saw a lot of bad shit and I don’t wanna talk about it no more.”
