You are on a stool with a Catholic guy looking at the world through ethnic eyes.

After floating a whisky to one of our Irish boys in uniform -- luckily it wasn't Marine Corps Birthday this time -- we struck up a conversation with Maj. Gen. Mike Sullivan (USMC ret.). Now this guy has got the stories: 400 sorties over North Vietnam. He flew um f-4s I think (is that correct WOP?) out of Danang on bombing missions over Hanoi and B-52 protection. And even though this guy still defends W's (the other W, not WOP) so-called military service, Paddy and WOP have an open invitation to North Carolina for shrimp and beers with the general and buddies.
