I remember when home from Bama for thanksgiving I saw an ad about a snake handling Holy Ghost revival somewhere in NE Alabama. A couple of days later I saw a new article about some preacher being rushed to the hospital for snake bites.
I remember that incident. IIRC, he survived that bite but the next one got him...

Dont forget about the religious snake handlers too

Didn’t Richard Scruchy go to one in Birmingham or was it a black church when he was on trial. I forget but every time we get a big figure or politician go on trial they all seem to find a non white denomination to find religion in. I happens too often that I forget who went where.

Naturally. Bootleggers are only needed then...
When I was growing up, Rankin County (West of Jackson, MS) was dry. It was understood that the churches and the bootleggers were in agreement that the county should stay dry, as it was of benefit to them both.

When I was in college, I worked at a gas station on the Jackson/Rankin County line. People would come in and buy a sixpack, and ask that we put it in a brown paper bag. Which they would stow in their trunk. For fear of being ticketed for "possession".

one would hope
It’s pretty much a guarantee. The military operates differently than the civilian sector. Him doing it as an officer probably saves him a court martial and a loss of rank on discharge but he is going to be told to resign or else by his unit and battalion commander or get charged with conduct unbecoming an officer and a gentleman.
