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.
