Balta Pot Party

Anybody remember the BALTA pot party at Maxlrain? The place had more CID, MPs, ASA security, and strangers there than BALTANs!

    A cowboy from Montana, Wyoming showed up. Or maybe he was from Wyoming, Montana. We drank down the Maxlax from kitchen pots, piss pots, and perhaps some other pots. A strange guy named BJ was there. After that pot party some thought that the they people started watching us. Those they people. Durned them they, they never got it. We were like rad man. Who stole the Colonel’s sign from in front of his house on post?

    Yep, I remember it well. I believe the announcement (on 6-ply or poker paper, of course), was something like,

    BALTA POT PARTY
    you supply the pot and we’ll supply the hard stuff

    That touched off an influx of at least two Sp4 ‘mystery troops’ who had new ASA insignias on old fatigues. They were at least 5 years older than the rest of us and unusually chummy. They arrived shortly after the Pot Party notices went up and disappeared shortly afterward.

    It was the only Balta function that I remembver where there was no pot/hash present.

    I can not believe any of you smoked while were were trusted with the security of the country. I am so glad that I was not one of the criminals involved.
