Pup Tent 7 was formerly a Pup Tent in Misawa, Japan. The charter was revoked due to insufficient number of Cooties in the area to keep it viable. The number was subsequently assigned to the new Pup Tent at Poro Point (later moved to La Union).

FOUNDING AND GROWTH OF ‘PUP TENT KUTO’
GRAND OF THE PACIFIC PUP TENT VII

AS THE BASIS FOR THIS RECALL OF FOUNDING, BE IT KNOWN, AS AN ADJUNCT OF THE ORGANIZATION OF VETERANS OF FOREIGN WARS OF THE UNITED STATES , (VFW) THERE EXISTS AN HONORARY FRATERNITY TITLED ‘MILITARY ORDER OF THE COOTIE’ (MOC), WHICH WAS INSTITUTED IN WASHINGTON, D.C. OCTOBER 23, I920, AND WITH WHICH WORTHY VFW MEMBERS ARE GIVEN THE OPPORTUNITY, AND HONOR TO AFFILIATE.

IN THE YEAR OF OUR LORD, NINETEEN HUNDRED AND NINETY- THREE, SHADOW LAY UPON THE OBSCURE OUTPOST OF PORO POINT, A BARRIO OF THE PROVINCE OF LA UNION, ON THE ISLAND OF LUZON, IN THE PHILIPPINES, AND THERE WAS QUIET IN THIS DREAR AND TEDIOUS LAND. COL. B.J. SMITH, VETERANS OF FOREIGN WARS OF THE UNITED STATES, POST 9892, EXISTED ALONE IN THIS AURA OF FUTILITY.

IT WAS KNOWN BY CERTAIN STAUNCH MEMBERS OF VFW POST 9892, THEN COMMANDER DAVE RANSOM AS A SPECIFIC, (AND HEREAFTER LIKENED AS THE DADDY OF PUP TENT ‘KUTO’) THAT NESTING PLACES FOR THE ‘SPECI PEDICULI’ WERE SITUATED IN OTHER SECTORS OF THE PACIFIC AREA, AND OTHER SECTORS OF THE ARCHIPELAGO OF THE PHILIPPINES. SO THE QUESTION AROSE, AS QUESTIONS WILL, SHOULD VFW POST 9892 POSSESS ITSELF OF A NESTING PLACE FOR THE ‘PEDICULOUS HUMANOUS’? WHICH NESTING PLACE IN THE LANGUAGE OF THE INITIATED IS CALLED A PUP TENT. GOOD FORTUNE WAS IN THE OFFING, FOR ON THE OCCASION OF OLONGAPO VFW POST 11447 ANNUAL FOURTH OF JULY, ‘BEACH BASH’, COMMANDER RANSOM CHANCED UPON THE PERSONAGE OF COMRADE DALE PIERCE, A GRAND COUNCIL MEMBER , AND ADDRESSED THE IDEA AND NEED OF RAISING A PUP TENT FOR POST 9892. IN SUPPORT OF FACTORING THIS AMBITION, COMRADE PIERCE TRAVELED, AND ATTENDED THE AUGUST 9892 POST MEETING, AND PROVIDED THE REQUIREMENTS AND PROCEDURES FOR PUP TENT FABRICATION. THE SUBJECT THEN BLOSSOMED IN THE FORM OF A MOTION BEFORE THE MEMBERS OF THE SEPTEMBER MEETING, AND WAS BLESSED BY A HEARTY AND FAVORABLE MAJORITY VOICE. THE RESPONSE EVEN OF THE ‘PUP TENT’ IGNORANT WAS ENTHUSIASTIC. THE VOTE WAS GIVEN IMPETUS BY POST 9892 COMRADES, EMORY C. RUSSELL, RALPH N. BEGIEN III, ROGER W. LIMLE, AND JOHN L. PEDDY, WHO AT THIS SITTING WERE VISIONARY MEMBERS OF ‘NESTING PLACE’ PUP TENT ‘PINATUBO’, SITUATED IN ANGELES CITY, AND HENRY A. GOLIGHTLY OF PUP TENT ‘ELEVEN’, BARRRIO BARETTTO, OLONGAPO CITY. ALL OF WHOM SUBSEQUENTLY TRANSFERRED ALLEGIANCE TO THEIR CREATION OF THIS INSTANCE.

ON THE AVENUE OF TIME AT THIS CROSSROAD, BOTH TIME AND PROGRESS SLOWED. WHILE THE TREE HAD SHOWN BLOSSOMS, IT DID NOT IMMEDIATELY BEAR FRUIT. THE MIST GATHERED AND SETTLED, AND DID NOT RISE UNTIL TIME MOVED AGAIN, AFTER AN UNFORTUNATE LAPSE OF TWO YEARS. THE ORIGINAL SCRATCH OF THE THEN GESTATING PUP TENT THUS OCCURRED ON THE TWENTY-FIRST OF NOVEMBER NINETEEN-NINETY FIVE, WHILE PENDING RECEIPT OF OFFICIAL APPROVAL OF ITS INSTITUTION. AT WHICH SCRATCH COOTIE ASPIRANTS IN THE STATUS OF ‘ATOMS’ ELECTED AMONG THEMSELVES INAUGURATE ‘SHAVETAILS’. GENERAL ORDER NUMBER ONE, FORMALIZING THIS ELECTION, WAS DISPATCHED TO ‘MILITARY ORDER OF THE COOTIE, GRAND PUP TENT OF THE PACIFIC’, THIRTEEN DECEMBER, NINETEEN NINETY-FIVE.

AN EXTENSION OF HONOR TO COL. B.J. SMITH, VFW POST 9892, HAD BEEN MANDATED BY SUPREME DIRECTION . THE LOGIC OF THOUGHT WAS OVERWHELMING, AND STEADFAST HEARTS SALLIED TO THE CHALLENGE . SO IT CAME TO PASS, ON THE FOURTH DAY OF DECEMBER, YEAR OF THE SEVENTY SIXTH SUPREME SCRATCH, BEING THE YEAR OF THE CHRISTIAN ERA, NINETEEN HUNDRED NINETY-FIVE, AN ERECTION OCCURRED IN THIS PLACE, BY THE AUTHORITY OF THE THEN SUPREME COMMANDER , CHARLES D, SHORT, AND ACCOMPLISHED BY THE WILL OF SUPREME ADJUTANT, CLAYTON R. KNAPP, AND THE ERECTION TOOK THE FORM OF A ‘PUP TENT’. THE ACQUIREMENT OF THIS CHARTER GAVE RECOGNITION TO THE DETERMINATION OF EMORY C. RUSSELL, TO ESTABLISH THE FOUNDATION FOR THIS NESTING PLACE. WHEN THE PUP TENT WAS OBSERVED IN THE LIGHT OF DAY, IT WAS CALLED ‘KUTO’, IN RECOGNITION AND HONOR OF THE BEING FOR WHICH IT HAD BEEN ERECTED . (THE PEDICULUS HUMANUS, THE ANOPLURA SPECIE OF SUCKING LOUSE THAT INHABITS THE BODY, HAIR AND CLOTHING OF HUMAN-KIND). IN THE NATIVE LANGUAGE OF THE PHILLIPINES, THIS LOUSE, OR HS FAMILY, THE ‘LICE ‘ ARE IDENTIFIED AS ‘KUTO’ (HIS COUSIN THE CRAB LOUSE IS THE FRUSTRATOR OF THE HUMAN PUBIC AREA). ALTHOUGH TENDER OF TIME, AND PETITE OF STATURE,THE PUP TENT STOOD FIRM AND PROUD, AS IT WAS HELD BY NINETEEN PEGS, AND THE PEGS WERE OF GOOD MATERIAL, AND DRIVEN DEEP. THE EDIFICE CALLED ‘KUTO’, NOW HAD ONLY TO WEATHER THE ELEMENTS OF TIME AND GROWTH, TO PROVE ITSELF. A LISTING OF NAMES OF THE ORIGINAL PUP TENT ‘PEGS’, AND THE ROSTER OF INITIAL AND SUBSEQUENT MAJOR SHAVETAILS, ARE INCLUDED AS SUPPORT TO THIS ‘FOUNDING RECALL’.

FOR WANT OF A BETTER NAME, AND A WORD THAT ALREADY EXISTED, THEY WHO WERE THUS SHELTERED, TITLED THEMSELVES ‘COOTIES’. FROM THE BOOK OF BY-LAWS, PROCEDURES, AND RITUAL ACQUIRED WITH THE CHARTER, A POSITION OF LEADER OR ‘BIG COOTIE’ WAS OBLIGATORY. IN KEEPING FURTHER WITH THE CHARACTER OF THE UNDERTAKING, IT WAS ORDAINED THE ‘BIG COOTIE’ SHOULD APPEAR INCOGNITO, BY BEING TITLED THE ‘MOST LOUSY’, AND ADDRESSED UNDER THE NOM DE GUERRE ‘SEAM SQUIRREL’. TO PROMOTE THE THEME OF ‘FUN AND FROLIC,’ THE GATHERINGS OF THE CLAN WOULD BE KNOWN AS A ‘SCRATCH’. THE INAUGURATE SCRATCH WAS ALSO AN ENLISTMENT AND INTITIATION FOR THE FIFTEEN POTENTIAL ‘PEGS’ WHO AS ‘ATOMS’ WERE DEEMED WORTHY OF INDUCTION INTO THIS FRATERNITY OF HONOR. THE INVERSION AND CONVERSION OF THESE ATOMS TO THE STATUS OF HONOR WAS CONDUCTED BY FOURTEEN ‘SHAVETAILS’ OF THE AFOREMENTIONED NESTING PLACE, ‘PINATUBO. AS THE ‘KUTO PUP TENT’ ORGANIZER, AND IN HIS CAPACITY AS ‘SEAM SQUIRREL’ OF THE PINATUBO NESTING PLACE, EMORY RUSSELL CONDUCTED THE INSTALLATION CEREMONY FOR THE PUP TENT, AND ITS BIRTHRIGHT OFFICERS. THE DUBIOUS DISTINCTION OF “FIRST SEAM SQUIRREL” FELL TO JOHN WALWORTH, BECAUSE OF HIS UNUSUAL AND WELL KNOWN DEDICATION TO ‘FUN AND FROLIC’. THIS SAME MAGNETIC ATTRACTION CAUSED JOHN TO BE SEAM SQUIRREL IN DEMAND, FOR THE SUCCEEDING 1996-997 COOTIE YEAR.

AN ITEM OF FIRST BUSINESS, MANDATORY UNDER MILITARY ORDER OF THE COOTIES BY-LAWS, WAS THE BONDING OF THE ‘CUSTODIAN OF THE CRUMMY DUFFEL BAG’ FOR IMPROBABLE DEFALCATION, WHICH WAS EXERCISED BY THE NOBLE EXPENDITURE OF EIGHT DOLLARS IN THE CURRENCY OF THE UNITED STATES, IN THE FORM OF JOHN WALWORTH’S CHECK DRAWN ON ‘PEN AIR’ FEDERAL CREDIT UNION.
IT WAS CONCIDENTAL WITH THE PERIOD OF THESE DEVELOPMENTS THAT THE SUPREME SCRATCH ELECTED NOT TO FURTHER GRANT LIFE MEMBERSHIP IN THE MOC. THIS ITEM OF BUSINESS CONCERN WAS CARRIED FORWARD , PENDING A CHANGE IN THE BY-LAWS, BUT WAS OFFICIALLY DISAPPROVED BY THE SUPREME ADMINISTATION IN OCTOBER 1998. HOWEVER, LOGIC IS GUIDING ONCE AGAIN, AND THE SUPREME PUP TENT HAS REINSTITUTED THE CONDITION OF LIFE MEMBERSHIP BY ARTICLE 1, SECTION 120 OF THE SUPREME BY-LAWS, AND MEMBERSHIP RECRUITMENT IS BEING UNDERTAKEN WITH THE INTENT THAT LIFE MEMBERSHIPS BECOME EFFECTIVE AT THE COMMENCEMENT OF COOTIE YEAR 2002.

ENTERTAINING THE MOTTO OF ” DO GOOD , BUT DO NO HARM,” AND TO PROMOTE THE PUP TENT ‘HOSPITAL PROGRAM’, THIS CADRE ALMOST IMMEDIATELY ASSUMED THE ROLE OF GOOD SAMARITAN FOR THE BLIND CHILDREN OFTHE WOELKE SCHOOL IN BAGUIO. THIS ROLE STILL PERSISTS AS THE COPACETIC DEED, OF THIS HONOR CLIQUE, AS IT HAS MATURED FROM ITS FRUGAL ORIGIN OF NINETEEN LOUSIES TO THE PRESENT THIRTY- FOUR, BY PROVIDING WITHIN ITS FINANCIAL CAPABILITY, THE CHILDREN WITH STUDY MATERIALS, TYPEWRITERS, MUSICAL INSTRUMENTS, AND BASIC FOOD STUFF. PINATUBO PUP TENT FIFTEEN, WAS THEN, AND IS NOW GENEROUSLY SUPPORTIVE OF ‘KUTO’S’ PROJECT, BY CONTRIBUTING CASH AND QUANTITIES OF MAYONNAISE, PEANUT BUTTER, AND OTHER DELECTABLES THAT THE CHILDREN WOULD NOT OTHERWISE ENJOY. ODD IT MAY SEEM, BUT ‘KUTOS’ PROJECT OF GENEROSITY IN ASSISTING THESE YOUNG BLIND PEOPLE WAS NOT DEEMED CREDITABLE UNDER THE MILITARY ORDER OF THE COOTIE, HOSPITABLE PROGRAM, SINCE THESE HANDICAPPED KIDS WERE NOT U.S. CITIZENS. THE ‘SQUIRRLY GUY’ EXTOLING IN THE 1997 COOTIE PERIOD, WHO BY CHANCE WAS ALSO THE HOSPITAL PROGRAM CHAIRMAN, CARRIED THE CUDGEL WITH CAUSE, TO THE GRAND OF PACIFIC , MID-TERM SCRATCH OF THAT YEAR, AND WON ACQUIESCENCE FOR PROGRAM CREDITING. THROUGH ENERGETIC PROSECUTION OFTHIS PROJECT, PUP TENT ‘KUTO’, SIGNIFICANTLY EXCEEDED ITS ASSIGNED HOSPITAL PROGRAM REPORTING TARGET FOR EACH YEAR, 1996-2000.

TO HEIGHTEN THE FUN AND FROLIC ASPECTS, WITHOUT INFRINGING ON ESTABLISHED PROCEDURE, THE ‘IN TENT’ INITIATION INSTRUCTION FOR PUP TENT ‘KUTO’ WAS MODERNIZED BY TOM MORRISON,THE ‘MOST LOUSY’ FOR THE COOTIE YEAR 1997-98, WHO ALSO INTRODUCED THE “FRENCH TRENCH CLANGLE”AS THE SOUNDING TOOL FOR OPENING AND CLOSING THE SCRATCH, AS WELL AS FOR MAINTAINING DECORUM, ASSUMING THAT SUCH MIGHT EVER BE NEEDED, AND TO ALERT, IF NOT AWAKEN ‘COOTIES’ TO THE WORDS OF WISDOM EMANATING FROM THE SEAT OF THE EXULTANT OFFICE. IN RECOGNITION OF HAVING ACHIEVED SUFFERING SUFFICIENT TO MULTIPLY, THE ACTION OF PRESENTATION OF CERTIFICATES TO HONOR SUCH ACHIEVEMENTS, WAS ALSO ACCEPTED AS A SEGMENT OF THE INITIATION PROCEDURE. CERTIFICATES OF ACCOMPLISHMENT, ‘BACHELOR OF INCUBATION’, ‘MASTER OF TRANSFORMATION’, AND ‘DOCTOR OF AGGRAVATION’, ARE PRESENTED TO THE NOVICE AS HE PROGRESSES THROUGH THE DEGREES. THE PRIDE OF THE INITIATION FOR THE DEGREE OF AGGRAVATION, WAS THE INTRODUCTION OF THE ‘COOTIE CURSING THRONE’. UPON WHICH THRONE, THE ‘AGGRAVATED’ MEMBER PLACES HIMSELF, AND DELIVERS THE ‘CURSE OF THE LAMENTING COOTIE’.

AS THINGS DO CHANGE, AND THEY DID, DURING THE GESTATION PERIOD OF PUP TENT ‘KUTO’, AS DESCRIBED IN THE PRECEEDING , VFW POST 9892 POST HOME RELOCATED FROM PORO POINT TO BAUANG, ALSO LA UNION, IN DECEMBER 1995. WITH IT AS ITS HONORARY CAP, WENT ALSO PUP TENT ‘KUTO’, (THE LEASE FOR VFW POST 9892 HOME RUNS FROM 1 DECEMBER 1995 TO 30 NOVEMBER 2005) PUP TENT ‘KUTO’ NEGOTIATED A MOST ACCEPTABLE ARRANGEMENT, IN THAT NO RENT IS PAID TO THE POST FOR THE USE OF THE FACILITIES FOR THE HOLDINGS OF THE ‘SCRATCH’. THE HONOR BESTOWED UPON THE POST BY THE PRESENCE OF THE PUP TENT IS ACCEPTED AS MORE THAN AMPLE CONSIDERATION.

PUP TENT ‘KUTO’ MEMBERSHIP CURRENTLY STANDS AT 34 (OCTOBER 2001). THERE HAVE BEEN GAINS IN MEMBERSHIP, AND UNFORTUNATELY, THREE LOSSES. THESE ARE THE’COOTIES’ WHO HAVE GONE TO A HAPPIER SITUATION:

PUP TENT ‘KUTO’ PICAYUNES: ‘KUTO’ HAS
EXPERIENCED NO REJECTED APPLICATIONS FOR MEMBERSHIP. WHICH EVIDENCES THOROUGH BACKGROUND EVALUATIONS .

PUP TENT EXPERIENCED ONE INSTANCE OF LACK OF QUORUM TO CONDUCT SCRATCH. INTOLERABLE SITUATION, NOT TO BE REPEATED, BUT NOT TO BE TOTALLY UNEXPECTED. MEMBERS RESIDENT LOCATIONS ARE WIDELY SCATTERED. OF THE NOW THIRTY-FOUR COOTIES OF PUP TENT ‘KUTO’ THE SMALL NUMBER OF THIRTEEN RESIDE WITHIN ONE HOUR TRAVEL TIME, AND A TOTAL OF ONLY TWENTY-THREE ARE IN- COUNTRY. SUCH OCCURRENCE AS TYPHOONS CAN, AND DO, PLAY HAVOC WITH ATTENDANCE.

PUP TENT ‘ 7 ‘ BANNER WAS DESIGNED, AND PRESENTED BY COOTIE, LARRY SENATO [C.C.D.B.] 18 MAY ,1998. WELL DONE COOTIE.

COOTIES OF PUP TENT ‘KUTO’ MADE PICAYUNE DONATION FOR ACQUIRING CUDDLY RABBITS FOR BLIND CHILDREN OF WOELKE SCHOOL , DECEMBER 1997. REST OF THE STORY: RABBITS ATE CARROTS – DOGS ATE RABBITS – KIDS SAD.

‘KUTO’ ADOPTED POLICY OF ‘FINING’ COOTIE SCRATCH ATTENDEES FIFTY PESOS AS A SUPPLEMENT TO THE 50-50 RAFFLE, FOR COMMUNITY PROJECT FUND RAISING. NOT AN UNUSUAL APPROACH FOR COOTIES! THE POST BAR ALSO PROFITS.

COLONEL RENE CERTEZA [NON-COOTIE] COMMANDER OF
AMERICAN LEGION POST NO. 94, QUEZON CITY, DONATED 5000 PESOS TO PUP TENT
‘KUTO’ SPECIAL PROJECT OF ASSISTNG THE BLIND CHILDREN OF WOELKE
SCHOOL IN BAGUIO. YOU ARE WELCOME ANY TIME COLONEL.

PUP TENT ‘KUTO’ SUPPORTED VFW POST 9892 ‘CHILI
COOK OFF’ FESTIVAL 1999, WITH DUNK TANK OPERATION, BY BORROWING TANK FROM PUP TENT ELEVEN, OLONGAPO; ALSO DID SNOW CONE SALES. ‘KUTO’ CONSTRUCTED ITS OWN DUNK TANK UNDER AUSPICES OF COOTIE TIM AUKSHUN FOR FESTIVAL IN YEAR 2000. PROCEEDS WERE DIRECTED TO CHARITABLE PROJECTS. TANK WILL ‘FLUSH’ AGAIN FOR CHILI COOK OFF IN NOVEMBER, YEAR 2001.

ANOTHER ODDITY IN ITS EXISTENCE, IS THAT ‘KUTO’ HAS EXPERIENCED ONLY ONE INSTANCE OF A COOTIE, WHO POSSESSED THE FLOOR, OF BEING DECLARED “OUT OF ORDER”, AND NO HAPPENSTANCE OF A COOTIE BEING DECLARED ‘IN ORDER’, FOR ANY REASON.

BLESSING : “WHERE THERE IS ‘B R O T H E R LY L O V E’, THERE IS ‘A B U N D A N T
‘J O Y’, THERE IS ‘U N E N D I N G P L E A S U R E’ IN LIVING.”

WRITERS INDULGENCE ON SUBJECT OF CONCERN: PUP TENT ‘KUTO’, AS WITH BROTHER ORGANIZATIONS, HAS BEEN STRICKEN WITH THE VIRUS ‘IDLEITIS”. THIS VIRUS IS CONTAGIOUS AND AFFLICTS BOTH THE YOUNG AND OLD. IT APPEARS IN THE FORM OF AN INCAPACITATION WHEN A TASK IS ANNOUNCED, OR SPECIFIC EFFORT REQUIRED, OR REQUESTED. IT IS GENERALLY OVERCOME BY THE FEW ‘WHO WILL AND DO’, BUT IS IMPEDED BY THE GREATER NUMBER OF THE ‘WON’T AND DON’T’. IT IS A VIRUS MORE VILE THAN ANTHRAX, AS IT HAS NO ANTIDOTE OR CURE. IT EVENTUALLY LEADS TO TOTAL INCAPACITATION.

HISTORIANS LICENSE FOR QUERY: THE SUPREME BY-LAWS OF THE ‘MILITARY ORDER OF THE COOTIE’, (M OC), STIPULATE UNDISPUTABILY, THAT THIS FRATERNITY (MOC) WAS INSTITUTED IN WASHINGTON, D.C. OCTOBER 23, 1920. THE CHARTER ISSUED BY THE (MOC), GRAND OF THE PACIFIC, AUTHORIZING THE ERECTION OF PUP TENT ‘KUTO’, SIMILARLY STATES AN UNDISPUTABLE FACT. TO WIT, THE DATE OF THIS AUTHORIZATION WAS THE FOURTH DAY OF DECEMBER, YEAR OF THE SEVENTY-SIXTH SUPREME SCRATCH, BEING THE YEAR OF THE CHRISTIAN ERA, NINETEEN HUNDRED NINETY-FIVE. DO ANY OF THE READERS OF THESE TWO FACTS OBSERVE ANY ISSUE OF DISPUTE OR CONTRADICTION IN THEIR CONTENT ? THIS IS THE QUERY.
