From Hell Hawks, page 186

Here's a funny little incident that followed the Luftwaffe's raid on the 386th Squadron's airfield.

After the wounded were taken care of, Mac McWhorter watched Doc Smead vigorously digging a foxhole. Eventually Smead was down seven or eight feet, dirt still flying from his shovel. Coleonel Stecker noticed his work, and leaning over the hole yelled: "Doc, if you go down another foot I'm going to put you down as AWOL!"
Vigilantibus et non dormientibus jura subveniunt. Molon Labe!
