554 RHS 1975-76


A few weeks after I got to the 554 in Osan, Korea in 1975 a group of us went down to Punsan to pick up the heavy equipment being sent over from Thailand. This equipment was coming in on a ship that had a stop in the PI to drop off some equipment and step and a half. When the ship arrived I was assigned to go down in the hole of the ship and move the equipment to the opening to unload.


While doing this I was talking with a crew member and told me a story about step and a half. He said he was sick while they were in port in Thailand and the first day after they left port. He went to eat and heard that they had a horse on board that liked to drink Crown Royal and eat cigarettes, so he got his bottle of Crown Royal and went down to see this horse. When he got to the horse he poured some Crown in a cup and the horse put his tongue into the cup and lapped up all the Crown. So he took out a cigarette and handed it to Step and Step turned his nose up to it, so he thought the story was only half true. Then he lit the cigarette and then Step took it and ate it. He said so he and that crazy horse got drunk.
