I think I've mentioned it before, but there's this thing over here called heat rash. I'm not sure if it has a technical name, but pretty much everyone in our platoon was getting it while we were down in the Zaidon. The doc's say that it's caused be a build up of salt crystals in the skin, either way, I really don't care what it comes from, but it's a rash that's red and bumpy and itches like crazy. Well, the whole time we were in the Zaidon I didn't have it, but Muir did, and he had it bad. Real bad. I would hound him nonstop about it, telling him he had to get rid of it before we got back and would be going to the beach and to Vegas. I called him the 'nasty recruit'. I made sure his life was miserable. I would prank on him while he was sleeping and move the fan off of him. Well, like I said, I went the whole time in the Zaidon without it, and as soon as we are done operating and can shower everyday and get some semblance of AC, what happens?? I get it. And I can't get rid of it. Karma.
