Shortly after joining the Army, I was in line with some other inductees when the sergeant stepped forward with that day's assignments.

He handed several tasks out and then asked, "Does anyone here have experience with radio communications?"

A longtime ham radio operator, I shouted, "I do!"

"Good," he said.
"You can dig the hole for the new telephone pole."
