<< There's no mention in the original Chandler canon of Marlowe ever having been in the service. One of the short story "pastiches" in RAYMOND CHANDLER'S PHILIP MARLOWE mentions that he was briefly an infantry non-com (I think it was in Robert Crais's "The Man Who Knew Dick Bong"). >>

And The Man Who Knew Dick Bong was in fact written by Crais as a stand alone short story, and then rewritten with Marlowe as the protagonist by Crais for the compilation volume.
