Footlocker 7

Check this out. Every time we hopped a ride down to Udorn from LS 20-Alternate  for smokes and a beer/Scotch run, I’d leave my “issue” Model 39 9 mil in my wall locker in the hootch. I carried a Model 19 w/ JHPs  under my shirt.   When we departed again on the klong flight back up, I’d zip into the big warehouse there at the AOC  and grab a new one and a holster. They had crates of the these and Browning Hi-powers, too. I sent a bunch  of them back to my sister that Fall and told her to put them away. I gave them to all my friends when I got back and managed to keep one. This is a real NIB. It was clean and has a low (87XXX) number.  Nobody liked them. Who’d trust their life to a seven-shot semi-let alone a 9mm? It’s like a Vespa. They’re fun to ride but you wouldn’t want your friends to see you on one.

A forty two year old virgin- and liable to remain one.

    Gee, you sure have some interesting lethal objects in your footlocker. You don’t happen to have an old jet injector hidden away in there, do ya? If so, you could do some interesting experiments with luminol…and report back. I’d really like to know why the DOD/VA think that blood-to-blood transmission of pathogens with old generation MUNJIs is plausible! Shucks, they were so darn efficient at inoculating our veterans from yellow fever, etc…

      Remember, they (vA) never did any studies to actually find out if HCV would transmit via gun. Just HBV studies. Therefore it’s merely plausible but not proven. And no, I wasn’t a medic so I didn’t collect any pedojets. I was a packrat of many things-mostly made by Colt, Kalashnikov, and E.I. Dupont. Nemours & Co. Lord and Taylor should make a perfume that smells like Cordite. It would be a big hit. They could call it Eau d’Stress.

        How hard could it be to set up experiments with all those HCV vets roaming about?
        Give a shingles shot to a HCV PT; go over to a fresh cadaver (animal, human, whatever); and give it a shingles vaccination. Test the tissue, device, and so forth. Think they’re waiting to see if the remaining living Vietnam vets (previous post) reduces from 1/3 remaining to 1/4, 1/8–before HCV is declared a presumptive SC disease?

        • asknod says:

          Vietnam War Vets, as a universal class of claimants, are dying faster than any group before them. HCV will be presumptive when there are none left to benefit from it. Witness PCT and Chloracne with the AO debacle. You had to have it within one year of leaving RVN to qualify for it. Who knew until 1991? Talk about the ultimate Catch 22.
