The stories you are about to hear are true only the names have been changed to protect the innocent
I once watched a boot private get upgraded on a flight I was on. I was on my way back to the desert from leave but in civvies.
I'm still salty about it.

Ever wear your uniform in the airport? It's super annoying.
I never flew in civvies, no one did as far as I know, but security was nonexistent in those days. Do you still have to carry a copy of your orders?
