More moons ago than I care to remember, I found pieces of a journal in the mud. Not much, really, just a few pages. I never did find out who the author was. On one of the pages was this log entry:

"We ate hot chow this morning
They gave us some sort of pills too
Nobody knew what they were for
Nobody asked"

...we didn't know much about him
He said he was an orphan
They patched him up as best they could
...we all went over to look at him
His eyes were half open
I touched [unreadable]
I don't know why
Maybe I was hoping he'd wake up
His body was still warm
I felt guilty for being alive
The scuttlebutt is that he wanted the corpsman to teach him how to pray"
