One day, while on sentry duty, I heard a sound that I didn’t like. I was making my rounds on the ground when I heard the sound, so I was unable to see what I knew must be there, so I quickly ascended the watch tower in order to get a visual on whatever it was that I had heard. From my new vantage point, I was able to ascertain that hostiles were indeed moving towards our location. With no time to lose, I called down to my superior officer: “Sir, I perceive a threat, approaching the south perimeter.”
The response I received was, “Funny Puppy!”
