Buck Private Bubba
AIRED:
Vint's former Army Sargent come to town on a recruiting trip and he and Vint go out for a night of beers. Meeting Bubba a little later, Sarge remarks what a fine soldier he'd make. Of course, has no real interest in joining up, until he gets dumped by his girlfriend. Taking some advice from the Sargent he enlists in the military. Problem is, the break up doesn't take. Bubba soon regrets his enlistment when his girlfriend comes back to apologize and they get back together. Already having signed the papers, he prepares to leave for basic training. That is until Mama discovers a loop hole in the Army handbook she looks through with Iola. Just as Bubba is about to take the oath of allegiance, Mama rushes in and breaks the news that Bubba can't join the army because he's a convicted felon.moreless
