The offficial version is that John graduated from high school in 1968, enlisted in the Navy, and was discharged eight weeks later due to a bad back. He would have been all of 18 years old at the time. We don't have any evidence that there was anything squirrely about the discharge, but how bad a back can you have at 18, and still be mobile forty years later?
