"The Army" #2

When I went in , the army was transitioning from brown boots to black boots...They issued us
leather cleaner and dye...One guy found a new use for his, he would sit on his bunk and sniff the
remover...a couple more guys developed a "fondness" for each other...they were all gone the next morning...that kind of behavior was not tolerated in '58.
My favorite part of basic was when we got our rifles...the M-1, 30-06 caliber.Heavy sucker, but
extremely accurate.We learned how to tear them down, put 'em back together and shoot.On the
rapid fire part, the recoil would push me back off the firing line, and Sgt. Wilson would grab my belt
and drag me back where I belonged.I qualified for the expert medal, and a few years later I would
be on the Caribbean Rifle Team in Panama....I was having a blast!
