With all the stories I've told, there was one I just remembered that I think you'll find amusing. This happened when I was with 4th LSB out in Lathrop, CA. We were at a firing range near San Louis Obispo. It was Sunday and I was with the rear party. There was a Army National Guard unit out there and with the work done, we got into a quick football game with them.

The final score was about 28-7 in our favor. As our bus pulled up and we were grabbing our gear, we passed by the Army officers that were watching the game. One general walked up to us with a smile.

"Thanks, Marines. You earned me a nice bit of money."

We looked at him with amusement. "You bet against your own people, sir?"

"Hell, yes! I'm a former Marine. I'll bet on the winning team."
