    We occupied an old WW-2 German bunker that was overrun by the Russian hordes a decade and a half before, thought we were round two in that respect.
    Thanks, SOCOM42, . . . did not mean to laugh at your misfortunes of war, . . . but I got a chuckle out of the description you gave.

    I recall sitting in a brick box 3 ft high with corregated metal over my head to keep down the monsoon rain, . . . watching the locals go by, . . . M14 on my lap, . . . safety off, . . . just hoping my warm Coca Cola and Hershey bars would keep me awake and alert enough if one of them tossed a grenade at me.

    Yeah, . . . I ate those danged ham and lima beans as well, . . .

    May God bless,
    Dwight

    The Law stayed around a bit to long. The last Tow I fired was the 2A version . Yes for it's time it was impressive. And the had the best sights of it's time and they kept getting better. The current version of the Javelin is pretty amazing. I like the fire and forget.
    I have never held one but have heard they do have 50 rounds with DU bullets.

    Immediately after the cease fire of the ground offensive for Desert Storm we (3rd Armored) used to scavenge through abandoned and sometimes destroyed armored vehicles all of the time. Some hit with DU Sabot rounds, some hit by us. We never mopped up and were never advised to do so. Exposure could be a significant problem at some point. Of course I read my book by the light of burning oil wells, was around burn pits all of the time, exposed to carcinogenic hydraulic fluid, including ingesting one time and was exposed unmopped up to sarin nerve agent. Health of veterans was just not that important during Desert Storm or after it.
    A big time difference in caution and concern when I was back over in the litter box 2003-04. Overall that is, my unit was a large mess.

    When fired the Tow back blast leaves a signature that can be seen a good distance away. A good armor crew spotting it could hit you before the tow gets to them. The shells were darn near twice a fast. Some times I miss it other times not.

    Pretty sure my old Jyrene pal with Tow missles had the set and forget models. He said it would head to the target looking like it was going to miss and in the last few second it would correct itself and hit where it needed to hit. It mighta been lazer guided or something. Its been a few years back. lol.

    two things
    - I always thought the beef stew, pound cake, and peaches in heavy syrup was the best.
    - did you ever get a meal that was only 2 years younger than you were? mine was a 1953 manf date.
