A Real Bed !

Other then the 1st Hospital this is the only real bed I saw in our Battalion area. It belonged to Cpl. "Shorty" Whitaker. It was his 2nd tour in Vietnam. I have no idea how he came about getting it, so don't ask. That little TV atop the hotlocker was real, I guess , I never saw it on. Armed Forces Radio is the only entertainment we had and yes, every morning there was a voice that started the broadcasting day with Gooooooooood morning, Vietnam ! Then played the song "It's a beautiful morning !" You felt like throwing something at it. (Robin Williams played in that movie about Nam where he played the part of the DJ that actually said those words.....Goooood morning, Vietnam.
