While they trained you for the infantry?
I was never trained for the infantry. Battalion scouts were elite troops, see. There were only six in each battalion, and nobody was very sure about what they were supposed to do. So we would march over to the rec room every morning, and play Ping-Pong and fill out applications for Officer Candidate School.
During your basic training, though, you must have been familiarized with weapons other than the howitzer.
If you study the 240-millimeter howitzer, you don’t even have time left over for a venereal-disease film.
What happened when you reached the front?
I imitated various war movies I’d seen.
I was just browsing and thought I'd share.

btw, their archives are compiled by decade starting with the 50s and the genre varies from fiction, to poetry, to screenplays with some noted figures. Whether you like them or not, they're likely familiar. Just click on the title bar or header bar under Interviews, and archives for more variety.
