I don't know about his sleeping on guard duty. If he did it at Ft. Gordon, GA he was a bad soldier. If he had done it in a combat zone, it was potential manslaughter to his squad mates. As a nineteen year old buck sergeant, I ordered my squad members to wake me up to stand their guard watches if they felt too tired. Only one ever did. I told him "I've walked as far as you have today, carried as much trash, (infantry gear) as you have, but if you think you need more rest, have a good sleep." He looked very ashamed and stood the rest of his watch. He was a very good soldier and won a Silver Star later.Garand said:He did his duty, if you consider sleeping on guard duty, honourable service! Some of us don't.
Well, it's something HE bragged about "not doing much but sleeping on guard duty" which was his reason for thinking he can sneak into military bases and steal the guns and ammo he wants because they'll all be sleeping like him.Terry G said:I don't know about his sleeping on guard duty.
