I was a linguist and codebreaker in Vietnam, and one of the guys in my language class went home to South Philly before shipping out and got shot in the shoulder. His name was Rod Schmell, and was a real clown. In his first week we had guard duty the same night. They issued us 50 HE rounds of 30mm ammo and some flares, and told us to make a lot of noise. Rod was in a tower that night, and around midnight radioed in to request more ammunition. surprisingly, they sent it to him and for a week or more he had a huge bruise on his right shoulder.
