How you ever put racism in that is sure telling. The red cross I encountered was all white!

My beef with the RC is that they actually sold us the cigarettes that they provided as we came out off mission. Lousy bastards were always at the pay line but when we were the weakest, they told us we had to pay for the cigarettes they were offering. There they were all clean and dry, taking up space and air and they had the balls to sell us cigarettes. They didn't even help us to put our wounded down. Some things you cannot unsee!!!!!

The Red Cross didn't. The Army did.
