A Young Superstitious Carolina Recruit

A Young Superstitious Carolina Recruit

Over fifty years ago, a young superstitious Carolina ridge runner from a hollow back in the mountains, was drafted by the Army for the Korean conflict. He was shipped off to a camp in Georgia for basic training. His granny told him to watch out for any abnormalities and to remember, things come in threes. On his first day the Army issued him a comb. and that afternoon the Army barber sheared off all his hair. On his second day, the Army issued him a toothbrush and that afternoon the Army dentist yanked seven of his teeth. On the third day, the Army issued him a jock strap and the MP’s have been looking for him in the Carolina high country boonies ever since.
