(in the South Pacific) So everybody is supposed to take these little yellow pills, but a lot of guys thought, If I can hang on to this malaria and can have it really bad, they won't send me to the front. Well, the Army wanted them to go back to the front, even if they were yellow-green in color. So they had to have pill call, and they had to watch these guys put it in their mouth and with a canteen of water swallow those pills.
