Quandary Resolution 1345
shambles, deltiology, ambuscade, ruth
In the bloody shambles that remained after our ambuscade of the Viet Cong raiding party we found the stolen M-203s (mostly intact), some maps of the area around My Tho and, unexpectedly, our late, unlamented Lieutenant Miller's collection of pornographic postcards still in their tin box with "DELTA 3" written on the top in laundry marker (famously referring to the Mekong Delta, the delta of Venus, and Deltiology) and, once we'd retrieved the guns and the maps, without remorse or ruth we rolled the bodies off the road, chucked the tin on top, and continued on our way.
