John "Jack" Bolt, who went to his final reward in 2004, was theonly two-war U.S. Marine Corps ace. As a junior officer during World War II he scored six enemy kills while flying the Vought F4U Corsair. As amajor during the Korean War, he scored six more while flying the NorthAmerican F-86 Sabre on an exchange tour with the U.S AirForce.

Jack Bolt was a hoot! During a commercial airline flight severalyears ago, he was seated next to a young mother with a babe in arms.When the baby began crying during the descent for landing, the mother began nursing him as discreetly as possible.
*
Jack pretended not to notice and, upon debarking, he gallantly offered his assistance to help with the various baby-related impedimenta. When the young mother expressed her gratitude, Bolt responded: Gosh, that's a good looking baby... and he sure was hungry!"
*
Somewhat embarrassed, the mother explained that her pediatrician said nursing would help alleviate the pressure in the baby's ears.
*
Jack sadly shook his head, and in true fighter pilot fashion exclaimed,"Damn! And all these years I've been chewing gum."
