Howdy Again Kent,

Excerpt from his biography:
Harry Harrison was drafted when he graduated high school in 1943, at the age of 18, and served four years in the Army Air Corps.

During his time in the army, Harrison proved himself an excellent shot, and was awarded the Sharpshooter medal.

His wartime experiences left Harrison with an enduring loathing of military life and practices. These same experiences and loathing find their way into many of his stories: he feels deeply uneasy about the pro-military stance of much popular science fiction, and regards it as his job to redress the balance and "destroy the military" in his stories.
