Superstitions in teh Military

Recommended Posts

I read with interest about superstitions in the military. When I served in Vietnam as a grunt and Company Tunnel Rat, a superstition in our and other Companies was that is very bad luck if someone lost their lighter. I can remember several occasions when the entire platoon stopped while we all searched for a lost cigarette lighter.  Don't know why but it was our own little superstition.
