Grunt… part 3.

.

Did I mention I was surprised at the amount of space devoted to penile combat injuries in this book ?

.

.

It definitely wasn’t what I expected…

.

.

Though I admit I now know more about the subject than I probably need to.

.

.

Ditto that for Liquid Ass.

.

.

No, this book wasn’t at all what I expected and as I read on? It kept going downhill…

.

.

Forget nuclear weapons and terrorism, it’s the unruly digestive tract that will be the death of us.

.

.

When they said war is Hell? That’s what they meant…

.

.

Baby wipes? Sailors are such delicate creatures…

  1. In 1415, at the battle of Agincourt, the English army, riddled with dysentery and outnumbered somewhere between two and five to one, dealt the healthy and well fed French a thrashing that would become the stuff of legend. Though generally much better equipped, they lacked the one thing that gave Henry V the advantage. Yeah, archers are great, can’t take it away from them, but nothing drives out fear and builds determination like the implacable rage that comes when your asshole is turned to a reeking volcano of misery. Somebody’s gonna pay for that.
    I talked for a bit with a guy, a lieutenant in the Air Force, about being deployed in the desert, and he told me that baby wipes were almost like money. They don’t just take off the shit, they take off the grit, which is pretty damn miserable too.
    God bless the Marine Corps, I’d put them up against anyone. That said, the Navy is still better than anyone else’s navy, even if we do wipe our asses properly.
    Good post, I’ll be checking this book out too.

  2. Try living with it for life, as I do. I never went to war, but I contracted colitis and had my entire large bowel removed. My doctor attempted bowel reconstruction, but it failed miserably. I have not had a normal bowel movement for 40 years now, and I never will unless someone comes up with a way to undo what my dictor did. It is not a priority.
