** Mike's father Will tells a story from when he was in the Army about a sergeant from Georgia, a grade-A redneck racist asshole, who gave him a hard time just because Will had the audacity to look him in the eye, salute and say "Good afternoon, Sergeant" while on the way back from spending his three-day pass in Boston.
