time passage.....................

      General Dreedle had thrown open Colonel Cathcart's private skeet-shooting range to every officer and enlisted man in the group on combat duty.  General Dreedle wanted his men to spend as much time out on the skeet-shooting range as the facilities and their flight schedules would allow.  Shooting skeet eight hours a month was excellent training for them.  It trained them to shoot skeet.

     Dunbar loved shooting skeet because he hated every minute of it and the time passed so slowly.  He figured out that a single hour on the skeet-shooting range with people like Havermeyer and Appleby could be worth as much as eleven-times-seventeen years.
