Monopoly money.
10 cents would buy a good shoe shine then.
I once splurged and spent $1.50 on a deluxe haircut
at the Tachi west BX. It included a shampoo and a face mudpack by a hardworking Jo-san.
$5.00 a month meant never to get KP and never to
clean the barracks or shine the shoes under the bed.
I had just turned 18 years old and this was the best
adventure of my life.
