Meyers was Valedictorian of his high school class, captain of the track team and an Eagle scout. He was going for his degree in Phys. Ed. on a state scholarship when he suddenly dropped out, moved to the coast and became quite weird for about three years. He was standing on the boardwalk in Venice pondering something cosmic when the utter pointlessness of his existence hit him between the eyes like a runaway freight train. "I think I'll join the army." he said, and promptly did. Took basic and AIT at Fort Benning, graduated jump school and desert training unit. Qualified expert all NATO and Warsaw Pact small arms.

"Some of the Joes think that Footloose is out there, but all he's trying to do is find himself. He's the All-American Boy who got lost on the way to the fair and he's simply trying to go home any which way he can. Most folks think they know who they are and where they're going...They're the dangerous ones!"


My Personal Notes: Footloose has been a missing hole in my collection. Always thought he was a cool Joe that I was missing.  He is a 2012 eBay acquisition.
