First Line: Two troops from the ag levy section
Subject(s): Military Police; Names

two troops from the AG Levy section
got into an accident
a fender bending
each guy looked and didn't see the other guy
the left front corner of one car
hit the right front corner of the other
what to do
Diogati and I
gave them each a ticket
one for careless and reckless driving
contributing to a traffic accident and
one for careless and reckless driving
causing a traffic accident

later ten of us from the 208th
Military Police Company get notices
from the Adjutant General Levy Section
a levy calls us for overseas duty
eight of us to go to Korea
Diogati and I begin ready Vietnam training
at the automatic fire range we discuss it
Diogati says he has nothing to worry about
his name means God guards
and he asks me what my name means
