Abe was hanging with other war veterans at a bar when The Late Late Late Night with Jimmy Jimmy, with Kent Brockman as guest. At the show, Kent started telling war stories, such as when he crash landed a falling heicopter on a sinking container. Another war veteran at the bar confirmed that Kent's story was false.
