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.
