Dysentery.  Jungle rot in every fold of skin.  Immersion foot, a.k.a. trench foot.  A leech for each and every body orifice.  Hasn't had a dry square inch of skin in six weeks.  Rain.  Rain.  Rain.  Mud.  Mud.  Rain.  105F.  "Don't even open your mouth, Sir."

That's a M 1917 Browning Machine gun.  No tripod or ammo, but the complete package weighed over 100 lbs

79 lbs without water in it, or tripod
