Note: This is a true story of an incident that happened to me in 1977 while I was stationed in the Canal Zone of Panama. I was lucky enough to have written things down just a few days after this incident happened, or I wouldn't have been able to recall the pertinent details.

While serving in the US Army, I arrived at my new duty station at Fort Davis in the Panama Canal Zone in September 1974. This was a huge change in climate from what I had left at Fort Lewis in Tacoma, Washington.
