    Posted before. But on the way down the pilot "Military DC-3" or something says.
    "Wanna see some jungle." AHHHHHHHHHHaaaaaaaaaaaaa...
    Swamp top level. Damn wings were hitting the brush.
    30 guys screaming like little girls.
    I could not wait too get out of that stink hole and get too Nam. Never never have I been in a worse dump in my life.
    If your in the Military and they tell you your going too Ft. Polk. Go friggen A.W.O.L..

    as part of "detachment-1" we even had to spend a few weeks training at ft.polk --seems like it was around 1982.

    late june-- just right to be crawling around in the thickets cause all the snakes and bugs were out full-force by then.

    thank the lord for 100% deet!
    a snake and bug infested, gator filled swamp/rain forest steam bath.

    but i have spent much time in WORSE places since. makes polk look like the good old days--LOL

    Thumbs up

    Good man j4. Ft Polk survivor. They trained me in that swamp hole. With a recoilless rifle. Then sent me too the damn mountains, where it got so cool sometimes we almost needed winter gear.
    Never saw a swamp, or rice paddy again, till I moved too Florida. Or a recoiless rifle.
    I was so glad too get out of "Devils Island" I mean Ft. Polk. Really did not care if they sent me too Bangladesh.
    Gotta love the Guberment.
