"For those of us who live in dense urban areas, I recommend a little tool called either a "lawn faucet key" or "sillcock key". Take a look at what it is and I think you will figure out what to use it for."
"Yah, I felt the same way about this guy's site, but thought you might be interested in reading it. He was throwing around unit ids like he had some inside info, but I'm with you, never heard of a req for hawks. A lot of urban…"
"Clint, Just cruising the site and saw your post. I had heard for years that hawks were used in Viet Nam, but had no first hand knowledge. A quick search turned up this website and article. I have no validation, but thought you…"

Here is a link that will give you all of the particulars...
