    Yep, they sure did !! And the "don't look at the shooter, don't talk to the shooter, and hold your arm dead still" rule applied there, too. The warning about moving your arm or flinching could cause the vaccine gun to slice you open was the first thing I heard when I got in the line

    Didn't see anyone faint or get sick from those inoculations, but I did see several pretty big guys try and climb over the desk when receiving the Gamma Globulin shot in the buttocks (at my overseas station).

    Oh yes, the Gamma Globulin shot (I couldn't remember the name of it) was much like getting an injection of winter time gear oil in your back side... and then they'd take you out and run you like a greyhound, claiming that muscular exercise was the only way to dissipate the heavy consistency of the compound. Honestly, you could feel the lump of vaccine in your back end... that felt much like a handball embedded in your muscle tissue. Oh, the memories.

This was back in the days when the first started using those guns. If you flinched or he slipped you got a slice on the arm along with the shot. Making me sick thinking about it.
    Did that in 66 at basic training, Ft. Ord California.

    I was in the air force. One day our training instructor asked if we wanted to train on survival. Then he took our day room tv remote from us and said no snacks after 8 pm. The next day they made us do 5 extra push ups and watch a comedy movie about sailors training. True story.... I swear.
