Comment on The Belmont Club,
"Going to the dogs"

My mother said that she had a cousin who was a gentle scholarly man with a good university degree who later became an Accountant. So the Army naturally made him a mule driver and sent him to the Solomons. Apparently the Army Regulations specified how much weight you could load on a mule, and it was less then the weight carried by the average infantryman.
