We played war - 1979
Good news/bad news. The 81st Security Police got to play war against the British. This time it was on their turf. Sounded like a good learning experience and a lot of fun to be had by all. The good news from a supervisor's point of view was a good learning experience. The bad news was that many of us lost our break. The interesting news is we were given c-rations. You know the food that came in cans. Now the best part is that we learned how to use a P-38 can opener. I was so proud of my handy dandy can opener that I carried it on a key chain. I loved that darn can opener but gave it to a Vietnam Veteran because he had 'real war' memories using a P-38. I felt as if he earned my P-38.
Over the years, I missed having a P-38 on my key chain. Until recently, I came across a lot of 10 Vietnam era P-38's. Also in the spirit of giving, I decided to ask for donations of $10 for each P-38 and donate the money to
families and friends effected by the September 11th event. Now that we are in the season of giving, I am asking you for contributions. If you are interested, please send me an email at [email protected] .
