Just one more three day sweep.  The only laundry we
had a lot of times.  We'd jump in and just start washing
clothes and ourselves.

at Tugboat, summer of '69.

Either I'm getting ready to go, or just got back from the hospital.  In
early July we were on a patrol in the Bo Bans.  I couldn't stay
awake.  Everytime we'd stop I'd fall asleep.  Finally, about dark, the
Corpsman noticed and took my tempeture.  It was a toasty 104.  
They let me sleep that night with no watches.  In the morning when it
was no better they called a medivac for me.  I spent a week in
hospital in Danang.  I had contracted leptospiroses, some kind of
liver fluke.  When I got to the hospital they weighed me and I came
in at a less then hefty 122 pounds.
