For some unknown reason they decided they needed to patrol the base of the mountain to see what they could find out. Everyone on the mountaintop was a technie with no real combat training. Rob the lone Marine on the patrol at least had some training as all Marines are supposed to be riflemen first. You couldn't prove that by Rob as our amusement was stripping his M-16 and leaving it on his bed. He seldom was able to put it together by himself. Gunny Rich was not amused that they messed with Rob's mind.
