you might be interested to know that my dad, Al Corban, who is 87 years

"smokey" and by the same action originated the term "bear". In Montana,
where he was operating for most of his life, there was a hauling job in
which timber was being taken out of a National Forest area. Because of
that the Forest Service had people checking the trucks to see that they
were meeting all the standards. In fact, they could issue tickets and
fines. The truckers would call each other when one was spotted
somewhere and warn others about their presence. Since they wore the
standard uniform with the "Smokey the Bear" hats, Dad started talking
about them on his radio as "Smokey Bears" or, as it was quickly
shortened to, "Smokies",a "smokey" or "Bear(s)". As time went on the
term naturally got picked up and applied to any mobile law officer or
any officer in general.
