So he mustered out of the service, found a crappy job market waiting for him, and had enough pride to work at Target as a stopgap rather than going on the dole. He’s got my respect.
This story gives me the hankering to watch that hideous 90’s flick about the Target janitor locked in the store all night. Features a very compelling 20 year old Jennifer Connolly.
When nukes were under the control of Strategic Air Command and their stringent standards there were very few security incidents and none like this. When SAC went away and they put missiles and bombers under what was Tactical Air Command, the standards quickly fell off and it wasn’t too long after I retired that incidents began to occur. Most of those who are now in command positions either never served under SAC nuclear surety requirements or they served one tour as a crew dog. SAC pounded all of us, operations and staff, on a daily basis and God help you if you failed any nuclear surety test or broke any of the rules. Those days are gone, unfortunately for all of us.
