    I saw a lot of those Brown Navy Boats right next to my Base Camp.
    In fact "Dong Tam" was built by my 9th Division, by dredging up the bottom of the Mekong & making 40 acres of land with it.

    You and Richie, and any other real "Nam" vet have my respect, then & now. AND respect back then was few and far between.
  3. I bought the ingredients per the above directions and can say this is an unbelievable cure. After drinking about a case of Bud Lite around the fire last night, I felt pretty rough this morning. Woke up around 6, popped the pills and by 7 I felt like I didn't even have a drink. Cooked breakfast on the charcoal grill, cleaned up the kitchen, and now enjoying a morning margarita waiting for my ride to get here for a wine festival today.

    Great stuff Foam! Thanks for sharing!!

    I was lucky I never cared much for Hard Stuff.
    I drank a lot of beer in my days, but only hard stuff if I had to because it was somebody's Birthday.

    The reason I say I was lucky, was because when I got to Vietnam, the few places I spent time at you had to be at least an E-6 (Staff Sgt) or 21 years old for anything stronger than Beer. I didn't mind because all I liked was Beer, and a lot of it.

    If I really wanted something stronger, I could have easily find an E-6 to buy me a bottle, but finding somebody over 21 years old was a harder thing to do. We had a guy in my Platoon that was 22, and we called him Pops!!

    Now I hardly even drink much beer any more. After my Open-Heart fiasco, I lost my taste for everything---Even Prime Rib, Beer, and Coffee!! Everything tasted the same---Terrible!!
    After about 7 months I got my Taste for Prime Rib back (Thank God), and I enjoy a Beer or 2 only now & then, but I never did get my taste back for Coffee again, and I used to love it just "Black" !!!

    That's why I smoke so many Prime Ribs!!

    I remember being at Ft Benning, Ga. before I was 21(long ago). You were only allowed 3.2 beer and no hard liquor. Someone would always buy some shots and "sneak" them to us younger soldiers. Pure oxygen from the medic in the AM alway brought us out of the "fog" !

    LOL... lots of places offered that "Joe Palooka" beer. Ya know I can't tell ya why we all called it that, but that was what we called all 3.2. Only other time I ever heard that, was a comic strip in the paper as a kid. 3.2 should have been used to flush your kidneys.....LOL

    Being a traveling peddler for 30 years I must admit I’ve used most all of these medications to get me straight the neat day. Entertaining customers can be tough on the liver. But I’ve not taken them all at once.
    One exception though. Charcoal tablets? What the heck does that do for you Kev? .... Not sure I’ve ever seen them. B

    I am not a Corpman. But my best guess was it was an acid neutralizer? I know when in my youth, older people with kidney problems always took charcoal and/or ate burnt toast for breakfast. Maybe with a cup of hot tea and a stewed prune...... LOL

    I just know it was always in the packet, part of the "7 Pill Manifold" (don't ask) LOL

    That and it sucks up all the BS and takes it out of your system .
  14. Sunday Morning Stout is one of my favorite beers! Nothing better than a coffee imperial stout aged in Bourbon barrels!
  15. Also, Pedialyte is a miracle cure for hangovers as well.

    Lol! These days, that’s a recipe for writing off the rest of the day to misery and pain. And I am very far from a teetotaler. 30 years ago? This is the start of an epic day of booze and food. I think the bodies tolerance that decreases with time is a self defense mechanism.

    For awhile when I first met my now wife my hangover cure was "triple digits" we would both hop on my motorcycle and hit the highway going 100+ Maybe it was the fresh air maybe the adrenaline? I don't know but it worked as dumb as it was to do.
