    and if they have their shoes tied and zipper zipped they are doing the best they can.  They do put on a nice show and make wonderful guards for embassies and Navy bases.

    I left Baghdad in October of 2003 and we were still using "unisex" bathrooms.  There were just not enough to "discriminate."  Somehow we managed.  But Im Army so.....

    I go camping and backpacking all the time (when people arnt shooting at me).  Women camp and backpack in the same areas.  Somehow we manage.  I dont ever remember backpacking with a Marine so.....

    I do so wish I knew the unit said Marine was in.  I would arrange to send them every feminine hygiene product in the Army supply system in by the gross.  They will need them until they "man up."

    Go Army!

    •  Big paintbrush, GI. (0+ / 0-)

      When I was in Nam, everyone had a place by the wire to shit before they put in the shitters at this particular arty site.

      Both the Marines and the locals had no problem defecating around this spot. I think we were both looking for a place close to the enemy and far from where we sleep and eat.

      But the women had no problem and neither did we.

      I'm glad you had indoor shitters, poge.
