Try cholera in one arm and plague in the other, at sea in a DLG in heavy weather.
You get used to footprints on the bulkheads, but I’ve never seen barf that high up a bulkhead before or since.
If the first building you build once you reach your deployment destination is a shit hole, you’re in a shithole and a world of shit.
I was scheduled to go to Afghanistan in 1969 with the Peace Corps (I was “deselected” the day before we left. All of those shots, plus rabies. But I remember the cholera shot (and they came as a series) was particularly nasty.
Last one is not true - South Korean Won and Japanese Yen are both more than 50 to 1.....
First time we went, I was revaccinated for smallpox and polio, tetanus, typhoid, whooping cough, plus got cholera, yellow fever, and malaria prophylaxis. No pre-exposure rabies in those days. Got boosters whenever we went.
And yep, it was a $#!+ hole by any measure. Such good people - kind and hardworking and not at all hostile to a family of young Americans (that we had local friends did not hurt). But the government was (still is) horrible, and they suffered under that cruel yoke. Never seen such grinding, abject poverty anywhere else in the world . . .
- If the VD rate is close to 100%, you've arrived in a shithole.
- If you can't tell who are the people you're supposed to protect from the enemy swine until they shoot at you, you're in a shithole.
- if the only flush toilet for a hundred miles is the one in your compound, you're in a shithole.
- If our government really doesn't care any more for you than a piece of used Kleenex, they send you to a shithole with restrictive Rules of Engagement and no artillery.
If you’re advised to eat your shoes before entering the country, because you might not get a second chance, you’re being assigned to North Korea.
As unfunny as these turned out to be, I’m glad he excerpted and wish you hadn’t posted the whole thing.
LOL! (Literally ...)
I've done that one ...
I'm confused: you didn't think the examples were funny - why not?
I've had a look at your homepage and it's full of weird and inappropriate stuff. So, I guess that it's a good thing for the rest of us that didn't find the post funny, isn't it?
I'd bet you've never been overseas.
If the cities have names like Chicago, Detroit, or Baltimore....
That sounds more like a good target for large thermobaric bombs.
I will no longer deploy to a sh!Thole country, nor will I go to one of my own volition.
So let it be written, so let it be done.
Inappropriate and weird. I like it. Thanks for the plug.
And by most accounts Afghanistan was nicer in 1969 than it is today.
Nastiest shithole I've ever been was Pakistan, and I was only about two miles off shore. Never actually made it to land, Thank God. It stunk so bad and there were dead cows floating in the water.

You have issues.
