I Hate Him

It's been fifty-four years and every once-in-a-while I am reminded of an incident at Uplift. My grandson was recently complaining and saying how he hated someone in his class. That comment surfaced the incident at Uplift.

I was in the orderly room (shack) when a SP4 came stomping in complaining about his platoon Lieutenant. He was saying that he hated the officer and could not stand him. I told the SP4 to calm down and not do anything that he would regret. His response was startling. He said that he would never let anyone harm the LT. "I cannot stand him... but I know and trust him to get me home alive...."
