Field Conditions?

Topic: Field Conditions?

WHEN OUR UNIT was deployed in the early stages of Operation Desert Shield, we were told to expect "field conditions" -- hot, dusty tents, cold, vacuum-packed meals and rock-hard cots. But because the flow of people and supplies into Saudi Arabia had backed up, we were lucky enough to spend two weeks in a barracks complete with color TV. We found a VCR in a closet, rigged up some cables and hooked it up, only to discover that everything played on it showed up in black and white. One night, we were watching the latest Arnold Schwarzenegger movie when a newcomer asked why the movie wasn't in color.

"Field conditions," our sergeant said without looking up.
