The White Dragon

Chinese troops attacked Hill 203, Korea for two days. Suddenly, they dropped their weapons and ran.

"Why did crack troops run away?" General Brown asked.

"A dragon attacked them."

"Dragon?"

"That's what captured troops claim. They said it was white."

"Ridiculous!"

"Even crazier, they said it decapitated their troops with a towel."

Everyone chuckled.

Medics carried in a Marine. "Here's the only survivor."

"Is he wounded?" Brown asked?

"No."

"Then why's he so bloody all over?"

"We're not sure."

"What's it like up there?"

"Horrible. Enemy heads everywhere."

"Severed heads?"

"Yeah. Dozens of them."

The Marine muttered from his stretcher.

"What's he saying?" Brown asked.

"That he's a dragon."

"What the hell's going on?"

"He has battle fatigue, General. But it's very weird how we found him. He was at the bottom of the hill, clutching two severed heads and a bloody towel."
