Generators located in the Engineers Area due South of
the mess hall. These were Sgt. Sidell's baby's that he was always fussing
over. For some unknown reason, when we had one of those wild electrical storms,
these generators malfunctioned and then all hell broke loose because Sgt.
Sidell tried to call Ft. Bliss to report the problem and of course our trunk
lines to Bliss were usually on the blink too. Afterwards, when everything was
ok, the good Sgt. would come around and pat everyone on the back for a job well
