    The worst job I had in the Military was in the P.I. We had set up camp in Crow Valley for two weeks and we had to use makeshift toilets, basically a sheet of plywood with a hole in it set over a metal bucket. 5 or 6 in a row so you might have someone to talk to while you do yer bidness.

    Anyway for some reason they don't empty themselves so we got "voluntold" to empty the honey pots which consisted of digging a hole, pouring the contents in then burning it with Diesel fuel. Yes, you burn sh*t in the Military.

    How come no one mentioned the worst job, starts about four in the morning and ends about midnight? KP
