    Talk about awkward eye contact...

    "No, lootenant. I want to inspect your other privates."

    "No, doc. I got a bullet through this helmet."

    "Son, we go Ranger, not commando."

    Yanks by name...

    The caption written on the back of the photo reads "Short arm inspection. Sicily."

    That reminds me of something William Manchester wrote in Goodbye Darkness. One of his comrades in the USMC had a tattoo of 'Hi Doc' under his foreskin :eek: to be displayed during a short arm inspection. Sadly, the joke wasn't appreciated and the marine was placed under arrest for disrespect to an officer.

    You are both punning swine, and should hang your heads in shame.
    I did laugh, though.

    Your effort absolutely deserves an extensive round of applause, or clap even.

    The issue of prophylactics to soldiers in the German Army tended to be haphazard.
