Sherman, set the Wayback Machine for July, 1993
July, 1993. Souther Illinois, near the Illinois and Mississippi River junction. I was a 1LT with about 80 troops under me. Up the levee...work, work, work, work, work and work... Didn't matter. River was going to do what it wanted. Down the levee ... move, move, move!
OK, the next day it was back to filling sand bags!
Several hours later.... I think they got a bit tired.
