Old weapons effective as new ones

I was 20 years old when I went to Pleiku, South Vietnam, in January 1968, returning in January 1969. I was a cook in the unit called 573rd Infantry Supply and Support. From a Private E-1, I rose to the rank of a Specialist E-5 in only 10 months. So I was a very darn good soldier.

The guys in my unit did not receive nice new weapons. We were issued the same kind of old equipment used by the soldiers in World War II and Korea. But we did not care. Our guys found out that old weapons were just as deadly as new ones.

I finished my time in the United States Army by serving my final six months at Fort Benning in Columbus, Georgia.

Some of my wit:

Happy pappy — proud father

Celebrity diets — favorite fantasies

Reality television — well written

Tall order — runway models needed

Tiger Woods — where tigers live

Bad movies — reel life disasters

Frosted flakes — orange hair

Red carpet — more unknown celebrities

Crowbar — here crows get drunk

The Arthur Thompson show aired on Warner Access Cable Television from 1997 to 2005, Fox Access Cable Television from 2006 to 2008 and Manhattan, New York, Access Television from 2003 to 2016.
