before the bad got ugly I remember in desert shield our unit had built a 4 or 5 man outdoor wooden toilets the seats were in a row side by side you walked in closed the screen door to keep the un killable flies out picked a seat sat down and looked out the screen windows and did your business and when evening came you was ever so lucky not to be on hockey burning detail ,it had 55 gallon drums cut in half for the waste to go in below and little doors you would open up in the back and pull out the barrels put diesel fuel .light and stir like witches brew with a big stick till all waste was burned up and all gone we took turns laughing at each other on the hill saying hey look at you that's what I want to do when I grow up lol I sure had my share of stirring the brew and many others did to.

Nothing like watching the bubbling while stirring and dodging the smoke. The true shit detail.
