A Man in Uniform

A flirty woman waiting for an elevator with an Air Force colonel explains why she’s so attracted to men in uniform. One factor is their power to kill other men with impunity.

Story Genesis

A dear friend of mine, hearing that I needed a front doorway location to shoot one of my films, offered to let me use her home. I was of course deeply grateful. Then when I told her I would be playing the colonel, she said she loved a man in uniform. I’m sure she meant it as a compliment, but it got me to thinking about what uniforms represent. If you wear a military uniform, it means you are exempt from the societal norm that killing another person is wrong. A soldier may even be a Christian, professing to believe “thou shalt not kill,” but at the same time say, “But this is war; it’s different.” The job of the military is to kill, and the uniform is the symbol of that.
