Keeping it light III Rich said: "When I was in Korea, enlisted personnel could not cook in their rooms, but..." Wow! rooms! Reminds me of a time I was at Kadena Air Force Base in Okinawa. Often, Air Force Enlisted Clubs require a paid membership. So, this kind Staff Sergeant or Tech Sergeant was kind enough to sponsor me along with a few of our sister services NCOs in for a beer. I was a Second Class Petty Officer at the time. Joking around, like we do, Someone ask what would you do if you roll over in your tent and there was a scorpion right in your face? Ipiped up and said - boondocker post! I would grab my boot and smashed that SOB. The Army dude said - yeah I would stomp it out. The Marine said he would pick it up, look it in the eye an swallow it whole. Our host laughed at all of us. She said she would immediately call the front desk and ask - WHAT THE HELL IS A TENT DOING IN MY ROOM?
