Mustard Gas[edit]

An initiation was conducted to Military personnel in the 60's, Mustard gas was melted by candle and them a drop was administered to the forearm by needle point, it took almost 30 years for it to fade away, a group of about 15 Army soldiers were taken to an attic in a German barracks in Augsburg, they went through this initiation for the knowledge of knowing what this stuff would do if it was dropped on us by the Communists, —Preceding unsigned comment added by 98.30.127.34 (talk) 14:53, 25 November 2009 (UTC)
