Troop Train Ernie


You're on a troop train heading for destinations unknown. You pull KP on the train and after serving a trainload of GIs you all take a break. The train stops to take on water and off in the distance is a sign flashing the one word dear to every GI's heart - BEER! So what could go wrong if someone ran down and picked up a few cold ones?
