You need better reading comprehension John. Bruce Hutchinson was
saying he had never seen a cook stand guard while he was in the
service, therefore he doubted it could happen in _any_
circumstances. Hence cook Melvin Brown never stood guard, etc.,

This is what prompted my comment about never having seen a plane
crash, etc., therefore does this mean it could never happen? I
was pointing out the absurdity of claiming something couldn't
happen because it wasn't in one's personal experience.

You probably still don't get it.
