Two soldiers, one standing with his backpack and holding his rifle with lance at the end, the other bending down at the edge of a pond to scoop up water in a bowl. "I told you, Pacot," begins the standing soldier, "that I would find a spring to quench your thirst! I recognize this area; I drowned two Arabs here, two weeks ago." His comrade looks sick. Caption under the cartoon reads "That's not worth filtered water!" (Virginia K. Anderson 04/10/95)
