At ROTC (Reserve Officers' Training Corps) summer camp at an Air Force Base in Florida, we were nervous about our approaching survival training, for we would be pitching our tents in a snake-infested swamp.

Our instructor, advising us on the treatment of snake bites, explained that the venom of rattlesnakes, copperheads and water moccasins affected the circulatory system. Their bites were to be treated with tourniquets, incisions and suction. The poison of the coral snake, on the other hand, affected the nervous system. At this point he closed his manual.

"Sir," asked a cadet, "what do we do if a coral snake bites one of us?"

"Turn to page A1-7 in your manuals."

There was a flurry of activity as we flipped through the guides. When we looked up, our smiles were sickly. Page A1-7 consisted entirely of interdenominational prayers.
