This was a minor transgression except to the baby sitter. I've seen some worse shit than that done under the influence.

The Battle of Ap Gu



In early 1967 the powers that be made an EM (Enlisted Men’s Club) right next to DIVARTY (First Division Artillery) in Phu Loi. It was during Operation Junction City. First Division units were making contact often and with big VC units. The only good thing about that period of time was that we didn’t have to carry heavy packs for long. We all carried as much ammunition that we could stand. If the LZ wasn’t hot as we came in it wasn’t long until we made contact. We were killing lots of VC but our casualties were up also. I was just about meeting myself going out as I was coming in from the field. I hadn’t heard that they were going to make an EM club so it was a pleasant surprise. When I came in from the field immediately after the battle of Ap Gu I heard about the new EM club so I rushed to clean my weapon, reload my magazines and got a new battery for my PRC-25 radio. It was dark by the time I finished and had some chow at the DIVARTY mess hall. I went to the new EM club alone. It was in a GP Medium tent. I went in and all the guys were bunched up near the make shift bar. The bartender was a cannon cocker who wanted a break from the big noisemakers. He figured he’d lucked out to get such safe, easy duty. I took my beer and sat at the far end of the tent. The club had square tables that sat four people with metal folding chairs. I’d left my weapon on my bunk but almost all the other guys had theirs. All the EM Club patrons had just come from the battle of Ap Gu. Some of those guys had fought hand to hand. The Battle of Ap Gu was described later as a huge victory but it could have easily of gone the other way. These patrons were the ones who had fought their asses off and were still wound way to tight. This was the Battle that put a rocket in Al Haigs pocket and launched his career into the top ranks of our country. I was deep in thought and sipping my beer. I was about finished with my first beer when I realized the guys near the bar were getting louder. I became aware that a guy from one table stood up and was going towards a guy at a different table. When he got close to the guy sitting down with his rifle across his lap the rifle just swung out and fired. The approaching GI was slammed by a round fired at point blank range and dropped like a light being turned off. The shooter simply pulled his weapon back and continued to drink his beer. There was a huge pregnant pause. My ears were ringing and no one was moving. Then someone poked their head into the tent and saw the dead guy. The head disappeared and a sergeant walked in and asked the shooter for his weapon. The guy handed over his weapon and finished his beer. Then he stood up and walked out with the sergeant. I didn’t finish my beer. I left and they removed the EM club the next day. Sometimes things just happened without any known rhyme or reason…they just happened.

Took some looking on my PC to find it for a link. It was a letter to an advice column:


Dear Prudence,
My brother and I are having a physical relationship. Our parents are admirable people who took good care of us, but are distant and aloof, and I think that my brother and I turned to each other for warmth and emotional support. He’s two years older and looked out for me in high school, and I shared with him what girls are like, which made him more confident socially. After he went away to college, I chose a college in the same city as his, so we continued to see a lot of each other. I'm now a senior and he's a graduate student. About three months ago we were sitting on my couch watching a sad movie and when it was over we turned to each other, exchanged a look, and started kissing. Now we lie on the bed, clothed, and kiss and talk and hold each other. When I'm with him I feel loved and cared for. We have not had sex because there's a psychological barrier that neither of us wants to cross. I go on dates with other men, but I never feel the emotional connection that I feel with my brother. I needed to talk to someone about this so I went to a counselor at the student health service and in the first session she practically ordered me not to see him for three months. I left in tears and haven't gone back. We want to lead normal lives and have families. We both know intellectually that we shouldn't be doing this, but we don't feel the wrongness of it. Must we stop this immediately, or may we let it continue and hope we grow out of it?

And maybe he should be THANKFUL it was a BABYSITTER and NOT THE HOME OWNER!!!!!!!!!

I heard a story back when I was in Grad school from a local lawyer (car holding ACLU dude) guy was drunk and broken into "his apartment" got arrested --- it was not his! The lawyer got the guy off by taking pictures to the court of the apartment complex ----put them upon the screen and asked which one was the right house? They all look exactly the same; I mean cookie cutter. I knew the complex it was a HUD complex and unless you looked at the numbers, which were hard to see in the daylight let alone at night in the dark; then you add a few (ok many) drinks and you break into the wrong place!

in the morning they brought me into the courtroom, i was arraigned, pled not guilty and was released on bail. i went to the pound to see my car, saw the tire and finally remembered what i couldnt the night before, hitting a curb and blowing out the tire, that i hadnt been in an accident at all, and that noone had been hurt.it was the first time since my arrest that i was able to breathe a sigh of relief.
i checked into the local alcohol counseling program the next day, and began to rebuild my life post divorce.
i had a few small relapses the first couple of months, but each time, my desire to feel alcohol in my system continued to abate to the point i didnt care for the way it felt in my system, felt much better sober.
ive been clean since then, ive had the occasional beer, last one was with lone wolf in damascus.
a few years later a little girl, katy flynn, who my daughter had babysat for over a year, was decapitated in a head on collision with a drunk driver, and i thought, "there but for the grace of god".

I observed in Germany that when a German passed out in the road, bahnhof or anyplace else people who didn't even know him would move him to a secure place where he could sleep it off. There were stories of soldiers that returned to their homes years after the war just walking in and being found in the morning. The Germans are bad ass but none of them talked about shooting drunks even with a super low alcoholism rate back them. Although I always suspected that since drinking was considered a normal thing to do they didn't lump everybody into AA. The water sucked over there.

That is how I was thinking on this. In the south Knoxville area, there have been a lot of pill head break ins, sometimes with the owners in the house. It hasn't always been a good thing for the homeowners. Occasionally they break into a house where someone is armed, and then it isn't a good day for the pill heads. I don't plan to wait and find out if the pill head is a friendly drunk.

I agree with the drugs thing. Here it is mainly pills and meth. True story: within the month we moved here a meth head went nuts across the street and tried breaking into neighbors stuff as she was on some sort of last bad trip/burn out. She died in the neighbor's front yard. Then later the neighbor across the street next to him had their cousin OD on pills in their house. Then they had the nerve to ask us to help get his last oxy prescription before it expired. Her husband ODed on pills numerous times, but never died from them. When someone tried to steal my truck, it turned out to be a meth head from up the holler that hangs with my neighbor who is currently in prison for breaking into the Chief of Police's house and stealing his guitar collection. I've got some winners around here.

Some brainiac renting a house from a builder i know was caught by the builder with a tidy stash of reefer. The builder dude went ape and told the brainiac he had to move out. Brainiac called the cops. When the cops arrived, brainiac actually told the police why the builder wanted him out. Cops told brainiac, 'come with us'. Doh!
