North Fort

When I was a kid we used to play Army at North Fort (Lewis, enlisted housing area). Found a smoke gernade in the woods. Set it off in an outhouse--yellow smoke reached for the sky, ran like hell. Wasn't me, sir. I wasn't there. :-) Wonder what else is still out there in the woods.

USN 1979-1983. Petty Officer 3rd Class. 2nd dumbest thing I ever did was to leave after four years. Thought it was cramping my lifestyle. In retrospect, it was my lifestyle that was cramping my lifestyle. My cousin joined the Army when I went in the Navy and he's retiring in 5 weeks, I'll be workin' for the man till I'm old, withered, and too exhausted.
