I had a buddy whose grandfather-in-law (is that even right?) wanted to join the airborne in WW2, but was told he had bad teeth and couldn't go. He asked if he'd be able to go with no teeth and was told yes. So the guy gets all of his teeth pulled and signs up a couple days later.

Bear in mind, that story is fifth or sixth-hand, so the auhtneticity can't be verified, but I can believe it after reading some of the things these guys faced without surrendering.
