Sometimes they were Reserve LTCs who suddenly managed to become aware of the "only 55 pounds in rucksacks" reg that was in place on Ft Bragg in the late 80s (after a series of jump injuries). This epiphany only came about after looking at the pile of stuff for the team to infil into Pineland, of course, which left the rest of us to carry it.

That was a peer eval well executed. I hope he's reading this.
