Lift-Ticket has gained a reputation as one of the best helicopter pilots in the Army. He is notable for his extraction missions where his coolness under fire and persistence aids him to get to and out of a hot LZ. Despite his reputation, he tends to downplay his abilities. One thing few know is he could have been an officer. He scored so high in his aptitude test, he could have gone on to Officer Candidate School, West Point Prep or Flight Warrant Officer School. He was actually only going to Flight Warrant School with the intent to later apply for civil employment in the aviation industry. Fortunately, somebody up in the office wised up before he got away.
