My Dad was in the Army during WW2. Just before his platoon got shipped out, my Dad came down with an intravenous block. The veins on his stomach stuck out so far they were about the size of his fingers. It was serious but it could have saved his life. His platoon was shipped out and deployed in Bataan and many did not return.
After he got released from the hospital, they made him an MP (Military Police). Doing his duties as such, he pulled up on his military motorcycle and stopped it in front of the base hospital. The Colonel came by in a mean mood and yelled at my Dad for parking it there. He said to move it immediately and take the shortest route possible to the other end of the hospital. The hospital was a long, narrow building with an aisle down the center with beds on both sides. So, my Dad fired up the bike and followed orders to the letter and took the shortest route right down the aisle of that hospital with the guys in the beds cheering him on. The Colonel just walked away because he knew that my Dad did exactly as ordered.
That act did not go over very well with the Colonel and he was closely watching my Dad, just waiting for him to make a mistake. One day my Dad was on duty guarding the gate which was in view of the Colonels office. A couple of soldiers came to the gate to get signed out. My Dad checked them over and their attire agreed with the uniform of the day, so he let them go. His phone rang and it was the Colonel who told my Dad to stop those men that they were not in proper uniform. My Dad called them back, looked over the sheet that listed the uniform of the day, and told them to go on and enjoy themselves.
This made the Colonel so mad that he dropped everything and stormed out of the office, tromped over to the gate, and started yelling and threatening my Dad. My dad then proceeded to arrest the Colonel because in his haste to bawl out my Dad, he forgot to put his cap on and thus was out of uniform. From that day on, that Colonel never bothered my Dad again. Now, I hope everyone is in proper uniform and make sure you all have a great day, you hear?
