Reminds me of a story told to me by a WW II vet. He had lost his right index finger in a farming accident. At the outbreak of the war he went down to enlist in the marines. At his physical, the doc rejected him because he did not have a " trigger finger". A month later he got his draft notice. He reported, and held up his right hand in front of the intake doctor. Sorry Doc, no trigger finger he said. The Doc said come over here son and walked him to a window. He pointed out to a field of trucks and said, son, not a damn one of those has a trigger. Never forgot that story.
