Lift-Ticket was one of those guys who joined the army to get out of his hometown. The big difference with Lift-Ticket is that he scored so high on the aptitude test, he qualified for West Point Prep., O.C.S. (Officer Candidate School) and Flight Warrant Officer School. Nobody in Lawton ever suspected he was that smart. Apparently, neither did Lift-Ticket, since he opted for Flight Warrant School over the others, thinking that it was the only one that offered training applicable to civilian employment.
"Getting into a target area is comparatively easy - you wait until dark and get sneaky. Now, getting out after some caps have been popped and a can o' firefight's been opened; well, that's another story. All you can do is squat on the L.Z. (landing zone) and hope that whoever's driving the extraction chopper is skillful, persistent, lucky, and bulletproof. Lift-Ticket satisfies the first three requirements, and he's working on the fourth!"
Variations: The helmet came in two slightly different shades of red.

Nobody in Lawton ever suspected he was that smart, even LIFT TICKET: he opted for Flight School, thinking that it was the only one that offered training applicable to civilian employment. He's known for his piloting experience and stubborn persistence in getting into a landing zone in the middle of enemy fire for extraction.
"You don't just fly into an LZ expecting the weapons fire to somehow miss you. You've got to have a whole lot of skill, plenty of stubbornness and a fistful of luck if you want to get you and your team out of there in one piece."
