Pilot’s career summed up as ‘Yeah, she’s pretty hot’
The Army hates to see her leave, but loves to watch her fly away.
FORT BRAGG LIBERTY, NC — After 23 years of service, Lt. Col. Rebekah Bennett retired from the Army last Thursday with full honors and multiple mentions of her physical attributes. At a ceremony marking the occasion were close family, friends, and many people who were instrumental to her career. Col. Dylan Cole presided—“retired her” in military parlance—while taking particular note of Bennett’s moderate hotness as the instrument of success for her military career as a UH-60 Blackhawk pilot.
“I still remember the first time Rebekah came into my office 20 years ago, fresh out of flight school at Mother Rucker—Oh, I mean Fort Novosel,” said Cole. “She walked in, not a lick of makeup on, and I thought ‘Yeah, I’d tap that.’ I didn’t even need to look at her flight school record. Her level of attractiveness spoke for itself.”
Cole then gave a lengthy salutatory on Bennett’s career highlights, including her kamikaze decision to get married to a civilian contractor and have a child as a captain. After gaining 40 pounds and not being able to turn the gaze of a single man in her direction, Bennett got her career back on track thanks to her husband’s wandering eye, a relatively cheap divorce, and her ex taking full custody of their child. With the additional stress, Bennett was able to lose the baby weight and regain the respect of her male peers.
