Lift-Ticket was one of those guys who joined the army to get out of his hometown. The big difference was Lift-Ticket is that he scored so high on the aptitude test, that he qualified for West Point Prep., O.C.S. (Officer Candidate School) and Flight Warrant Officer School. Nobody in Lawton ever suspected he was that smart. Apparently, neither did Lift-Ticket, since he opted for Flight Warrant School over the others, thinking that it was the only one that offered training applicable to civilian employment.

"Getting into a target area is comparatively easy- you wait until dark and get sneaky. Now, getting out after some caps have been popped and a can o' firefight's been opened; well, that's another story. All you can do is squat on the L.Z. (landing zone) and hope that whoever's driving the extraction chopper is skillful, persistent, lucky and bulletproof. Lift-Ticket satisfies the first three requirements...and he's working on the fourth!"



My Personal Notes: Not much to say about Lift-Ticket.  I never really thought much about him, and he was relatively unreachable paired with his out of my price range Tomahawk. Finally got him, though he is missing his hard to get mic.  He is a 2012 eBay acquisition.
