Extra Training Day at United
      02/03/16 09:55 AM

We had a draftee doctor arrive in our unit a month or so after I got there.
He wasn't too happy, but he did bring a copy of "Handbook of Tropical
Medicine", which was very helpful in figuring out what was up with some of
the Vietnamese. He did his job well, though.

His unhappiness started on day one. There wasn't a place for him to sleep
his first night (arrived late in the day), so he put up his poncho on four
sticks, each with a piece of commo wire at 45 degrees to a stake, so the
poncho was stretched out flat about 2.5 feet above his air mattress. He tied
the poncho hood shut and dropped a mosquito net over the rig. That was
almost clever enough, given the hot weather.

He woke up because something was on his belly. It was a sagging poncho full
of monsoon rain water. He opened his eyes just in time to see the poncho
split in half from the strain.
