the Phoenix area heat – you have to have access to one of these
As I stood there looking at it, my mind went back to the Blue Factory in Bosnia and the kiddie wading pools three of the docs had set up in their billeting area. What should have been an easy discussion turned into a major goat rope between the docs on one side and the Command Sargent Major on the other. His issue was not the pools, it was the swimming suits and setting standards. Who knew it was such a complicated issue – making sure that suits met some kind of consistency.
Me? I was just happy to settle for suits since the Norwegian women were routinely sunbathing on the roofs of their containers and providing a major distraction to my helicopter pilots.
