          What you didn't see was that it was very likely that there were either some chlorine/iodine pills in the canteen which would sterilize all the bugs. Needless to say this was awful tasting stuff but it beat no water at all.

          By the way, the journalist at the end was wrong. The ARVN South Vietnamese did eventually advance up the road and forced the North Vietnamese to retreat.

              I realized about the chlorine/iodine pills, but dang that water looks un-sterilizeable . I believe I would have sucked on leaves before
              I could drink that.

                Well, let's put it in perspective. When I got out & went back to college and some clod would start acting uppity, whether it was a professor or a pretty girl I would ask myself, "Now, I wonder just how long they would have to go hungry before they started eating cowdung." Because I know they would, I'd seen a lot of Vietnamese do just that to survive.
