Corporal Ray had warned me about talking to strangers. This buddy was a strange one for sure. I plugged into my Walkman. It was a gift from my parents before I left. “Good for training,” said my father. My mother handed me a boxed set of the Ladybugs’ greatest hits. Not my taste, but better than the hum of the motor.
