Captain Lend Me Light

Captain Lend Me Light

Took a couple of FTX's to figure him out. Never carried food or smokes to the field.

Back when we were on foot in the desert we would stop for the day under an individual bush about 20 meters between guys. He would go around "checking" on us while we were eating and smoking. By the time he had made the rounds with his mess kit spoon he was well fed and had smoked a few.

He was one hungry dude the FTX we caught on. We stopped, flopped and chilled. He was waiting to start his rounds until we started cooking but we all waited until full daylight. Then we ate well before sunset. He was one hungry Captain by the time that FTX was over.
