Killing Crabs the Hard Way
Thailand 1962, Young soldier, less
than a private heard me give a sex talk about condoms, abstinence,
cleanliness, washing etc. The old Medic to troops talk.
Late that night from under the water
buffalo heard a God Awful screech and scream. Seems our young Private
had visited a house of ill-repute and upon returning and sobering up he
decided to use a 5 gal can of gas to cleanse his genitals, thus the mad
dash to the Buffalo and the screams. 2nd degree burns result.
There should be a moral to that
story somewhere, but I had to treat this young buck and had lost all
sense of humor at that time.
Now as I reflect It is one of those
stories that cannot be believed but is true as the earth we stand
