It was the best dream ever Three men Me and two others,*we can call then joe and frank i don't remember the names* geared up like we were all famous marines from the Second World War and we were hiking across fields,mountains,canyons and jungles with an unsure objective each one of my squad mates found their weapons along the trail before me, M1 Garand and a Thompson When we found the jungle they set their weapons and heavy gear down do we could scout,we found a Vietnamese woman she started screaming and yelling AMERICANS!!! AMERICANS!! She was gathering water at the river and saw a Browning air cooled light machine gun by a fallen down tree in the bushes I grabbed it along with an ammo belt and it seemed to automatically turn into the water cooled variant as if the barrel would change through experience I was struggling to put the belt it,all I heard was ALRIGHT MARINE YOU CAN DO THIS SLOWLY PUT THE FIRST ROUND OF THE BELT BETWEEN THE TWO METAL PLATES IN FRONT OF THE OPEN HOLE!!! In my head that marine was gunnery sergeant John basilone, I loaded it up and saw 3 advancing troops I grabbed it and started firing RATATATATAT I had scared the soldiers away but I hit the woman I my buddies grabbed their weapons and ran over and saw what I have done we all just started but she said "it fine" We began hiking once again we had ran into a few little skirmishes outside of the Jungles in little rocky deserts by now I had earned my air cooled barrel with a slide on grip, we were walking smoking some marijuana or hand rolled cigarettes I can't remember,but then we heard RATATAT I was moving to get into position then BOOOM a big explosion happens and I wake up to my buddies,"hey man you alright? Lets get you up man" so we got up Weapons gone,our packs were burned or ripped and our helmets lacked covers, So as we finished hiking joe said "We made it! California" I was thinking why the hell did you travel here, then frank goes "the invasion launching point" we all hike down to rejoin the world and the war we needed gear so we stopped at a surplus store a woman ran it about 26 with a daughter around 5 they were Hispanic, we walking in from the back and greeted her,the store sold ever kind of military gear,I found my pack and needed to find a helmet cover the one i actually found was a Tarawa type reversible helmet pattern but it had to much green for where we were going so I kept looking and couldn't find the Correct tan cover to match my p42 uniform So I grabbed an identical Chinese copy and went to the desk We got them for free she asked me what my name was I didn't have one so I took my favorite marines name in place as I had his weapon "I am John-" frank cut me off "Johnny castle" that's him "Don't try to trick me I know who Johnny castle is and that's not him" so we started leaving and I leaned over and said "John basilone ma'am" We all got to the street and we all looked at each other,joe said "see ya boys good luck out there" we all shook hands and he left with frank It now occurred to me I was in a different unit I decided I needed Extra socks so I go back in the store and I saw this huge guy screaming at the woman and pushed her down I walked over "hey man you knocked her down why don't you try knocking me down now" one massive swing I barely dodge remembering training He grabs me and smashes me into the wall I was trapped I had to kick him in the groin 3 times each time kicking harder I landed I huge uppercut and put right arm behind his neck and started smashing his side with my left fist lifting the guy up every time I hit him he pushed me off and hit me clean across the face knocked my on the ground and he goes to jump on me I put my knee up to stop his attack but he seemed like 400 pounds of muscle on my leg I knew I had to do something so I started smashing his face with left and right hooks we got up and had a big brawl every move you could think up until he finally feel down but I picked him up put him on the wall and started beating his body until I felt I needed to stop I dropped him and told him to leave The lady told me it was her ex husband,she told me her daughter wanted a ladybug camera and I should get to for her as a present so I spent awhile getting one I found it and gave it to the little girl and she was the happiest thing she said thanks daddy The woman came over and grabbed my hand next thing I know I see me and the little girl taking pictures on a rocky beach Then I see a black and white view of a kitchen Me holding a baby and the girl now older and the woman are there I was wearing glasses and a tie as it now I was in a family with a kid and the war I was made to fight never happened
