Kris Kristofferson's father was an Air Force general who pushed his son to a military career. Kris was a Golden Gloves boxer and went to Pomona College in California. From there, he earned a Rhodes scholarship to study literature at Oxford. He ultimately joined the army and achieved the rank of captain. He became a helicopter pilot, which served him well later. In 1965 he resigned his commission to pursue songwriting.

If you carry a gun, people call you paranoid. Nonsense! If you have a gun, what do you have to be paranoid about?

Bauer and Jeff

I honestly believe he made a huge contribution with both moves. Song and Service. Look what he has caused in our country. I'm glad he made a great name for himself. I've always liked him.
