Wes Remembers . . . The time I was subjected to a “ Special Inspection. ” It seemed to me that those “ conducting ” said inspection were a small group in our upper class, maybe looking looking for a weak OC. Their special inspection literally fell apart when, after an hour or more and numerous uniform changes, ‘ they ’ stated that absolutely no one in the whole second class would place even an ounce of trust in me. On my objection, ‘ they ’ asked who? My answer, which ‘ they ’ then verified by bringing that person before us, left ‘ them ’ virtually speechless. OC Hauser (female) told them that I had both her respect and her total trust. “ Inspection ” over!!!! (My special inspection ‘ crew ’ was basically the same ‘ crew that delighted in testing the female OCs rolled underwear by throwing them across the room to check ‘ proper adherence to specifications; ’ generally causing their underwar to somewhat approximate a parachute prior to reaching the wall of the room, thus failing to open drawer inspection (no pun intended) and becoming subject to more upper class ‘ training ’ - (this, from OC Hauser on one of the club nights). (OC Hauser dropped out of 61D, later re-intered OCS in a larger class of female candidates and received her commission).
