George Carlin’s Discharge from the Air Force

George Carlin was trained in aviation electronics and was stationed in Barksdale, Lousiana. Like many other greats, he had a very disrespectful attitude to his superiors. He was discharged after three years for poor conduct. His discharge propelled him to become a comedic gift to many people all over the world.
