Might of been left over from Vietnam era. What we were to take were orange, but if I remember correctly, rather large. Most who took them got a case of the shits so bad that they/we never took them again.

Correct, big ass orange pills. I believe they were placed in bowls, in the mess hall on Mondays. Supposed to take one per week.

I never did.
