Of my World War II?
No, I don't, no.
Well about 2 years ago, I had a friend of mine that I met at the exercise place and he said,
"Where were you during the war?" And I said, "I was at Okinawa." And he said, "Well, what
did you do over there?" I said, "Well, one of my memories is that I was scared to death that I
was gonna get clobbered, but I remember one good thing. I remember sleeping in the Korean
Okinawa tombs." And I said, "You can close them off at night. They were on a big rock deal
built on the side of the mountain." I said, "That's the only place you could take your clothes off
and get dry and you could have a light and look around cause you'd block the entry off." "Boy,
you were there all right. You were sure there. That proves it's me." I said, "Well that's one of
the things I remembered about it that the only time it was good was during that time when you
could get dry and take your rotten clothes off."
