Carmen joined the U.S. Army as a young man, serving as a pilot in Vietnam. Carmen had a habit of celebrating every successful mission by playing Rolling Stones songs at max volume to annoy the brass. He was partnered with Captain Charles Xavier, known as the "Good Shepherd", flying rescue missions behind enemy lines with him. The two were close friends, with Carmen going so far as to promise to name his firstborn son after him, if he ever had one. Carmen became engaged to Theresa and asked Charles to be his best man the day before their tour of duty was to end. To his dismay, he found out that Charles had signed on for another tour of duty with the army. When Carmen decided to stay in Vietnam with his friend, Charles talked him out of it, telling him not to screw up his future for his sake. 
X-Men #129 allegedly showed the "first meeting" between Carmen Pryde and Charles Xavier, a later retcon established that they both served in the same Army unit years prior.
