A short military career, unfortunately

A male always has a high and tight hair cut and always wears a US Marine shirt.

I had known him for a number of years.

Finally, I asked: "when were you in the Marines?"

Patient: In 1977.

Me: How long were you in?

Patient: I was medically discharged.

Me: How did you get hurt?

Patient: I hurt my right shoulder on the 4th day of bootcamp doing physical training. I got medically discharged on the 9th day.

I KNOW he would have loved to have had a much longer career.
