THE WAR DUNGEON
Padré Vander Goten and an American M.P.
While Padre Vander Goten was visiting Belgian causalities in a nearby village, he heard had the Belgian battalion was going back into line, so he drove full speed to the battalion CP. During this trip, he was stopped by a very stern American MP who barked at him
"Do you now how fast you were driving?"
The Padre replied "I am Belgian and I have to be back in my unit, because they go back in line".
The American MP queried : "Are you one of those who came voluntarily to this war?"
The Padre replied to the affirmative.
The reaction of the MP was very typical : " You must be crazy, drive on !!".
