    Story: From an e-mail sent to Nik Dunbar by  BILL WARD M 3/26

    "Sweet Tooth Viet Cong"
    This relates to the CC-entry from 0302_1967, ambush by Mike 3.
    That was my platoon. What is of interest is that the 'paymaster' was dressed in a suit and tie. Shortly after Lt Manzi called "cease fire" it was still raining money everywhere because the sack that the money was being carried in got hit. As soon as the area was secured, Lt. Manzi sent one of his squad leaders down the line to 'collect any money that might have been inadvertently been picked up' amidst all the confusion. All the money was eventually turned in to headquarters but the 25 lbs. of rock candy mysteriously disappeared
