 The Father of All Rats (A Vietnam, Dilemma, 1971)


Vietnam, life was awful, for the rodent populace on Cam Ranh Bay, at Alpha Dump. Huge loads of ammo were kept somewhat underground with a hill on. Hardly did we at any point open the iron ways to that walled in area, save it should 6.8 spc ammo for sale have been ventilated, and cleaned, and examined now and then, typically every three to five months, somewhere around there.
