The phrase "Chinese fire drill" became popular once again with the military during the Vietnam War. In fact, several books written by former soldiers after the war used the phrase in their titles or descriptions of combat. In his 1967 book , which was sharply critical of the war, Donald Duncan quotes a fellow soldier as saying, "It must have looked like a Chinese Fire Drill back on the river as the shooting started." A veteran quoted in Craig Howes' also used the phrase while describing a particularly chaotic battle in August 1964. And the mystery writer Michael Wolfe titled his 1986 thriller about Vietnam-era POWs

even participated in a Chinese fire drill during the parade lap.

At 34 now I have never performed another Chinese Fire Drill again, so I guess I learned my lesson. Thanks Officer Cutie-Pie with the Hillsboro Police Department, mission accomplished.
