Out on the Rifle Range

In by Chris on August 29, 2010 at 4:21 am

Ted Wurm’s company arrived at the Fort Barry rifle range in June.

The first night, a fellow soldier told him that he was on cow duty, that he’d have to get up at 5:00 a.m. to shoo cows off the range for 6:00 practice.

He did, found no cows around as the sun came up over Hawk Hill, then waited for his comrades to arrive. He waited for hours.

Finally, at 9:00, they walked over in a jovial mood, praising the wonders of a full night’s rest and hearty breakfast as Ted stood staring at them, not a bit amused.
