This is a pocket calendar which I checked off one day at a time during the last half of my tour. During the last few weeks I'd wake up in the morning and yell "SHORT". Then spend the day under cover if at all possible. Pierre National, a full service bank; bet they didn't know they were providing this service!
When a soldier had approximately two months remaining on his tour in Vietnam, he might take a long stick and notch it for each of his remaining days in-country. As each day passed he would cut the stick off another notch until on his rotation day he was left with only a small stub. As you can see, I chose not to cut this one up.
