Tom Remembers . . . “ It was the Friday before the first week-end that we had any realistic probability of having a week-end off base, and we still had at least one of the female OC ’ s in our ranks . . . we were marching back to lunch from academics . . . As we were marching, someone from First Class asked in a command voice, “ Miss. TBD, what are you going to do off base this weekend? ” “ Sir,I’m going to get laid, Sir! ” came back the reply.
