I'd wonder if "Snakeshit" was around, but General Currier has a nickname already.


(In the movie We Were Soldiers Captain Ed "Too Tall" Freeman was a helicopter pilot and 2nd in command of Company "A" of the 229th Assault Helicopter Battalion, 1st Cavalry Division (Airmobile) during Vietnam War. Major Bruce "Snakeshit" Crandall was his CO. Freeman and Crandall are real people. Both were awarded the Medal of Honor for their actions in Vietnam during the Battle of Ia Drang Valley. And yes, Freeman was too tall, the first time he attempted to become a pilot in the Army. According to the movie, Crandall earned his nickname because he liked to fly low.)
