|Who ever thought you'd see a Major painting a Lt. Colonel's face
pretty colors! Actually, it was necessary to work in pairs because it is pretty
difficult to see your own face without a mirror! This was the preparation for the
Escape and Evasion exercise, where we would hide in the jungle while the local negritos
looked for us. We thought we had learned out lessons well and we all felt pretty
confident about being able to hide effectively. What most of us didn't realize, was
that visual cues were only one of the ways we could be detected. Most of us were
caught by the acute sense of smell possessed by our pursuers!
