    ....was an SP whose first tour of duty was at the SAC base in Goose Bay, Labrador in 1968.  On one occasion, he broke the arm of a captain who approached the bombers Mark was guarding without authorization (the captain was just trying to be a dickhead).  Mark didn't get in any trouble and went on to be a 20-year career man.  As I recall, the captain caught some shit, however.  It wasn't at all a good idea to mess around with SAC planes.
