Attempted Escape

As we were coming back yesterday from the KMTC there was a dump truck in front of us driving down the road. Suddenly a Military Police (MP) pickup screeched past us, pulled in front of the truck and stopped it. The driver jumped out, climbed up on the back of the truck and started yelling and waving his hands. Up popped two heads. Two young soldiers had hidden themselves in the back of the truck and were attempting to escape. The MP got them out of the truck and slapped them on the side of the head and pointed back to the KMTC, all the while yelling at them. That was a first. I’ve never seen an attempted escape before. It was quite the experience.

We all just looked at each other, not quite sure what to do. Actually there wasn't a lot to do but it was one of those experiences where you just go, "wow - did I actually just see what I thought I saw?"
