Well, my great-great grandfather was a First Sergeant during the Indian Wars, but he was only a Lieutenant during the Late Unpleasantness. He'd been a subaltern in the British Army before that.

Or.... You wore the blue as a "flag of convenience" to get out of some POW camp. As if trading your red tunic for grey weren't transition enough!

"Archers, NOCK!" was a range command.

You wore a horned helmet on amphibious operations.

You insisted "no man be worth a leek save he carry a Baselard".

You think the Army's gone soft, now that company punishment's less than 200 lashes.
