Gunny Sergeant Thornton retired from the Corps in 1973, and he lived in peaceful retirement with wife Marjorie until his death 31 August 1998, six days following his 71st birthday. Uncle Sam came calling in 1969, so it was off to Fort Polk, Louisiana for basic training, then on to Fort Bragg, North Carolina, where the 71Q20 MOS helped Rich land a spot reporting for Veritas, the Special Forces publication. Accordingly, the Queen and her household were startled with a visit from Sir Thomas de Vaux, requesting the present attendance of the Lady Calista of Montfaucon, the Queen's principal bower-woman, upon King Richard. ``What am I to say, madam?'' said the trembling attendant to the Queen. ``He will slay us all.'' ``Nay, fear not, madam,'' said De Vaux. ``His Majesty hath spared the life of the Scottish knight, who was the chief offender, and bestowed him upon the Moorish physician---he will not be severe upon a lady, though faulty.'' ``Tell the tale as it really happened,'' said Edith, ``lest I tell it for thee.'' ``With humble permission of her Majesty,'' said De Vaux, ``I would say Lady Edith adviseth well; for although King Richard is pleased to believe what it pleases your Grace to tell him, yet I doubt his having the same deference for the Lady Calista, and in this especial matter.'' ``The Lord of Gilsland is right,'' said the Lady Calista, much agitated at the thoughts of the investigation which was to take place: ``and, besides, if I had presence of mind enough to forge a plausible story, beshrew me if I think I should have the courage to tell it.'' In this candid humour, the Lady Calista was conducted by De Vaux to the King, and made, as she had proposed, a full confession of the decoy by which the unfortunate Knight of the Leopard had been induced to desert his post; exculpating the Lady Edith, who, she was aware, would not fail to exculpate herself, and laying the full burden on the Queen, her mistress, whose share of the frolic, she well knew, would appear the most venial in the eyes of C ur de Lion.

Methinks it were better that Richard relaxed his forest-code in England, than endeavoured to enforce it in the Holy Land.'' ``Wild work, Sir Kenneth,'' replied De Vaux, shrugging his shoulders, as one who would avoid a perilous or unpleasing topic---``a mad world, sir.---I must now bid you adieu, having presently to return to the King's pavilion. This the Queen remembered, and with a loud shriek fled from the apartment where Sir Kenneth was disclosed to view in a compartment of the ample pavilion, now no longer separated from that in which they stood.
