Due to a clerical error, a sixth envelope was delivered to the office of accountant Lester Kenneth Doothis.
While initially puzzled by the jumbled numbers printed on the letter within, Doothis’ keen mind soon cracked the code.
Assuming he was being called upon to serve his country despite his chronic asthma, irritable bowel syndrome, and numerous allergies, Doothis phoned in sick and hopped on a plane to Burma, making his way through the jungle and shocking the mercenaries by waking them by cooking popcorn over the campfire.
Convincing them he wasn’t a spy or an enemy, Doothis joined the team.
Surprising them with his quick-thinking and ability to hold a gun nearly parallel to the ground, Doothis became well-liked.
When Burmese guerilla soldiers attacked the 6 mercenaries with a chemical gas that constricted their airways making it difficult for them to breathe, Doothis used his epipen and overcame the attack to free the prisoners behind the backs of their overconfident captors.
Holding them off single-handedly, Doothis stayed behind—weaponless—to fight, using his laptop as both an edged weapon and a shield.
He died a hero and his story became a legend.
A symbol of determination against incredible odds, mercenaries and soldiers today still salute Les before entering a firefight by saying his name as a tribute to his bravery— “LES DOOTHIS!™”
