Dave had a bunch of vaccines the past two days. The two I can remember are Anthrax and Small Pox. Man, that Small Pox one is not one to mess with. He'll be dealing with the injection site for weeks. He has to keep in totally dry at all times which he plans to do using duct tape. Thats a tough Army Ranger for ya!!
The injection site will first swell then the next 4 weeks it'll blister, pus, itch and finally heal.
Soldiers with pregnant wives or small children can't get their vaccines until they reach Afghanistan. Kinda makes me nervous wondering what the heck could happen if I was exposed to it. Scary.


  1. are brave to get those needles mister. You are going to be stinky since you have to keep it dry. Thats what we need so we don't have to take a bath. BOL

  2. By the sounds of it he is off on another tour, having to get all the needles. The guys are tough. Take care.
