FLINT was a Rhodes Scholar and earned his degree in English Lit. Bored by the Groves of Acedeme, he enlisted in the Army and applied the tenacity and concentration he had used so well scholastically to grind his way through Airborne School, Ranger School, Special Forces School and finally Flight Warrent Officers School, graduating each with top honors.
