I just knew it!!! 
Check out this story from Blackfive, about a guy marine receiving a gal's care package:

Then of course, they had the tampons. When he brought this up my imagination was just running wild, but I let him continue. My son said they had to go on a mission and Marine X wanted the chapstick and lotion for the trip. He grabbed a bunch of the items out of his care package and got in the humvee. As luck would have it he grabbed the tampons, and My son said everyone was teasing him about "not forgetting his feminine hygiene products". My son said things were going well, and then the convoy was ambushed. He said a Marine in the convoy was shot. He said the wound was pretty clean, but it was deep. He said they were administering first aid but couldn't get the bleeding to slow down, and someone said, "Hey use Marine X’s tampons". My son said they put the tampon in the wound. At this point my son profoundly told me, "Mom did you know that tampons expand?" ) "Well, yeah!". They successfully slowed the bleeding and got the guy medical attention. When they went to check on him later the surgeon told them, "You guys saved his life". If you hadn't stopped that bleeding he would have bled to death. My son said, "Mom, the tampons sent by the Marine Moms by mistake saved a Marine's life."


I just knew it.

Marines are pussies!



(just kidding. Bravo Zulu, Marine Corps, for some quick thinking. Way to improvise, adapt, and overcome.)

I found an Album with pictures I had taken while in VietNam in 1968. I started putting a blog together and went to different sites for ideas, thus the reason for being at yours. Nice job and thanks for some good ideas. ---Jack--- vietnam war veterans
