    Don’t we all know what happens to the best of plans, once the first “shot” is fired?

    When I was in the Navy my ship was stationed in Philly. This was the early 70s. We had one very young sailor from W Va who was married. He marched to his own drummer. If it was time to plant the crops, or whatever, he would go AWOL, and sometimes even miss ship’s movement, which is a huge no-no in the Nav. All I could think of was John Denver’s “Take me home, country roads, West Virginia, Mountain Momma,” etc. He operated on that much of a limbic scale. No concept whatsoever of the national government or military orders and discipline if it interfered with “things at home.” Ultimately he got an administrative discharge.

    There was another young man from W. Va in my own division, an intelligent individual who was a fire controlman (as in gunfire aiming solutions for the ship’s 5″ guns). When Admiral Zumwalt loosened the “grooming standards” and allowed mustaches and beards, he grew a luxuriant mustache. I heard the other guys in the Division rag him about it. “What does your wife think of it?” He stopped them dead by answering, “She says it tickles her fancy.”

    West Virginians — a different breed.
