Being a Careful Kingly Messenger

It was a day where you could fry an egg on the sidewalk in Okinawa, Japan. Hot, humid, and dry are all accurate adjectives for the day on which my Company Commander decided to take us on a beach run. This wasn’t a run in shorts and tennis shoes, but a run in a green ...
