Description: 

The character who calls himself Captain Strutterbuck tells Montgomery Ward Snopes that his combat experiences include serving with "Black Jack" Pershing "on the Border in '16" (84). He may even be telling the truth. In response to the Mexican Revolution, units of the U.S. Army under Pershing's command fortified a number of positions along the border, and beginning in 1910 there was open military conflict between the two sides. The fighting reached a climax in 1916 in New Mexico and northern Mexico. "Mexico" is also mentioned in the novel as one of the places Flem might be planning to send Monty after he gets in trouble with the law (69).
