Response to Ahhh...the shots!
Have no reccolection of the one you are talking about but I sure remember the Typhoid shot. After it, the DI took us out to the sand and started rifle exercise and short order drill. The theory was, the more you moved your arms and kept going the faster it would pass. Sixty-four of us marched out and one or two at a time they started dropping. The ones who fell were escorted back to the barracks and allowed to sack out. Only six of us marched back in....staggering like drunks. I and my best buddy, who I enlisted with were part of the six. Back at the barrack, we looked at each other and decided we were fools. We could have fallen and be sacked out for 2 hours or so. Then we confessed to each other, that each of us would not fall as long as the other was standing No wonder they call us 'Jarheads'.
