Gunfighter Diary Desert Shield 28 Oct 90

28 OCT 90

Had a formation today, supposed to get Desert cammies Wed. No new info passed at AOM. Dutch, Stoney, Freddie and I left for a 2 day R&R at Camp 5 around 1100. Camp 5 is an oil worker facility that has been commandeered to house around 1000 Marines. There are chow halls, air conditioned rooms and clubs set up. Spot knows a LtCol over here who is letting us use 2 rooms, pretty cool.
Met Injun on the way our, traded room keys for car keys and went to lunch. Had a cheeseburger, fries and Pepsi (No Coke!) Mine was $4.35, Injun's was $6.00 He said he asked them to not spit in his. Watched a movie, did some reading, made a phone call and got to sleep in air conditioning again.
