+ John Clark, a character who makes multiple appearances in Tom Clancy's books, is a Vietnam veteran, a former Punisher-style vigilante, and leader of an elite anti-terrorist unit. He's also a PapaBear to his three daughters. One of them related a story about he frightened off-for good- a boyfriend whom he found less-than-acceptable ''just by giving him a death glare.''

** In one episode, due to rising gas prices, he buys a small, economical Japanese car. His pride in his military service clearly took a back seat to his habit of stretching his dollars as far as possible. "The last time I that close to something made in Japan, it was shooting at me."

* The final line in Patton's monologue to his solders at the opening of the [[Film/{{Patton}} film]] alludes to this. --> Now, there's one thing that you men will be able to say when you get back home. And you may thank God for it. Thirty years from now when you’re sitting around your fireside with your grandson on your knee, and he asks you: "What did you do in the great World War II?" You won't have to say, "Well, I shoveled shit in Louisiana."

[[caption-width-right:286:Don't ask, don't tell.]] [[note]]The dad in this poster actually is ''not'' an example; the propaganda here is "when all the other lads have stories of heroism for their kids and your kids ask you for war stories, how well is 'Daddy was a coward' gonna play?" However, it does a marvelous job of showing the cultural assumption of that era that most men of childraising age would be veterans.[[/note]]]]
