One thing I would like to know about women in combat, please.

I thought of my time in combat in Korea. Just a few questions: Why was my helmet called a piss-pot? Where do you potty in a foxhole, revetment, or bunker, and what do you do for toilet paper? How often do you take a shower and where? Even in our rest area, the “outhouse” had four holes in a board over some barrels, and there was no privacy as I sat alongside a guy only a foot away from me.

Let’s see now, um, how will that work?
