About Letter 285
At long last Bill's name is turned in for redeployment back to the States. His 19 month overseas deployment will soon be over. The men in Bill's company celebrate the news by getting "high as a kite". The one exception is Bill, who doesn't drink. To his chagrin he is the only one sick the next morning. Disgustingly he exclaims, "Hell, if I knew that I was going to feel so bad this morning anyway I would have gone on a real toot."
