“Did anyone ever call you a fly boy?” I asked. “I never heard it.”
“No, no one ever called me fly boy,” he said before he stopped to consider. â€˜But I didn’t tell anyone I was in the Air Force when I was a Marine.”
“Yeah, I guess not.”
“No, hell no. No one knew I that and when I got in the Army no one knew I had been in the Air Force or that I had been a Marine.”
“You kept that all split up?”
“Yep, yep, had to of course. Whatever branch of service you’re in, that’s the best and all the other branches suck so what are you going to do? Keep your mouth shut of course. No way would I admit I was in those other services…”
Yes this means 3 times through boot camp. Can’t imagine why I call him, the soldier.
