	The closest variant that comes to mind is the retired
	Army officer in the old SOAP series, who was blatantly
	looney.  There were also a few somewhat colorful, if not at least
	semi-looney, types amid the Viet Nam era who wore a uniform
	as part of expressing their political views.

	If the major's retired, that uniform plus his military approach
	to civilian life would seem to be a badge of insanity.  If
	he isn't retired, he'd still seem at least a bit odd.
