[Vietnam War] Kris Kristofferson Was An Army Captain helicopter pilot who attended Ranger school

You know Kristofferson from his songs Me & Bobby McGee and Jody and the Kid, but before he was a singer-songwriter he was a helicopter pilot in Vietnam who’d graduated from Ranger school. He worked his way up to being a captain, and after the war he was offered a spot at West Point teaching literature. He turned down the opportunity to pursue a career and songwriting - which you might say worked out pretty well.

After retiring from the military Kristofferson made his feelings about the war and U.S. government known, saying: I want you to know I'm an Army brat; I was a captain in the Army and my brother was a jet pilot in the Navy. So I support our troops; I identify with them. But I sure as hell don't identify with the bastards who sent them over there.
