As a Navy contractor in the mid-80s, I was attempting to gain access Naval Air Station Norfolk one morning via an auxiliary gate to avoid having to drive all the way around the base to get to the main gate to get a pass. The guard at the gate would not let me through, but then he noticed my Clemson ring. He asked “Is that a Clemson ring? Well, I guess you must be OK… you can go on through!”
Let’s hope the terrorists don’t find out about the old Clemson ring trick!
