I went to Goodwill and lucked out with a pair of camo pants and a Hawaiian shirt. I threw it on over a white tank. I borrowed my dad’s old Army dog tags and tied a red bandana around my frizzed up hair. I wrapped my knees in bandages and sat on my calves in a borrowed wheelchair to make sure “you ain’t got no legs Lieutenant Dan.” Finally I used some makeup to thicken my eyebrows and to give myself a mustache and beard!
