Sure, they could use gas, diesel fuel or napalm to burn out the shitters.

Burning dried shit produces foul smelling but white smoke. I had an Air Force friend who was in Vietnam who stacked up the dead bodies and burned them but I did not ask him what color the smoke was. White, green and red tracers, it looked like a Christmas Tree over there.

Sure, DRIED shit. Every field head I looked into was a semi-liquid combination of shit, piss and vomit.

I did a big machine install job in Parris Island in a new building where water had not been turned on yet. On the grass field grinder there was a women and men's head and we civilians had to use the men's. Cleanest heads that I ever saw and had pictures on what color of yellow your urine should be. Dark yellow 'bad' light yellow 'good' and in between was acceptable.

No No Noooo!!!......only diesel fuel was used in the drums in the Shitters .....Gasoline!!....Could you see some jarhead smoking while he was giving birth to a new Gunny Sgt and dropped that butt betwixt his legs into a drum filled with gas...!!...Come on baby light my fire!!!....Hot Nutz!!!....

Diesel was a whole lot less flammable...

The smell from burning shitters produced a permeating stench that just was ...well...Vietnam!!....that stench and the never ending sound of a Huey right over your hootch....I still get a freaky feeling when I hear that unique rotor noise those Hueys made....

Sure, P.I. is one of the two bases where the Marines have basic training. Some mean-spirited Gunny probably had some "boots" cleaning that head with their toothbrush's.
BIG difference between the heads on base4 in the U.S. and out in the middle of Vietnam.

Bloody urine....really bad.
Thanks from Twisted Sister

"COULD be used", diesel fuel was the best for the reasons you point out.

Never saw anything but diesel used...and trust me I built beaucoup shitters when I was in 'Nam......They would have us prefabricate and palatize them when we were short on work projects..(it was the "idol hands are the Devil's playground" logic).....When the Marines needed them out in the forwards we would pick a couple or four of them up with a CH-53 and take them out to the forwards and assemble them.....I got to see every Marine LZ and fire-support base in I Corps doing that....

My RCPO (recruit company petty officer and basically in charge) was a little more wild than I was. We had a big inspection and the inspectors said that toilet is dirty. Copes was his name and was black and from an LA slum shithole, cupped his hands and took a big drink out of the toilet and our Company 199 passed inspection 4.0. Navy boot camp San Diego and Marine boot camp was just on the other side of the fence.

edit: Poor Hill had the rack next to me and got a blanket party that I participated in. Poor Hill later got transferred to Company 4050 which was pure hell and soon to get a less than honorable discharge.
