Camo in the park

Chamo in the park

Even after reflection, I’m not sure how to take this. I listened to the commands, and this was a tactical exercise in how to move across the terrain if your group was under fire. I found it just plain creepy. Not the training, but that it was going on in the park.

The Guru and I came up with two theories we leaned toward about this exercise: 1) ROTC group from the HS across the street; or, 2) movie training.

    One time I had [baby] Liz at a neighborhood playground and a big army chopper buzzed it. I knew intellectually that we weren’t in any danger but it still scared the bejabbers out of me.

    Later on, I said to Liz, “Tell dad what we saw at the yellow-slide playground today.” She couldn’t even manage to say “ca-ca-ca”, just got wide-eyed and started circling her arms.

    They look eerily like the little army men toys my brothers played with, and burned up into globs of melted plastic (it was Vietnam War era, napalm and all that).
