There he became such a proficient machine-gunner, that he was made an instructor. He however, had always wanted to be out on the front fighting, not teaching. So Jack went AWOL from the camp and hopped on a train with a Marine combat unit heading west. Upon arriving, he answered role call and admitted his wrong doing.

The fact that Milkman even wants to leave his home represents the gradual maturation and understanding of his identity and his choice to stray from his father's example and leave town to obtain his inheritance and to become a self-defined man. He realizes when he needs to leave when he is on a plane, flying above the land, looking at his life in the ‘big picture’: “In the air, away from real life, he felt free, but on the ground, when he talked to Guitar just before he left, the wings of all those other people’s nightmares flapped in his face and constrained them. Lena’s anger, Corinthian’s loose and uncombed hair, matching her slack lips, Ruth’s stepped up surveillance, his father’s bottomless greed, Hagar’s hollow eyes–he did not know whether he deserved any of that, but he was fed up and he knew he was fed up and he knew he had to leave quickly”(220-221). Morrison suggests that flying makes Milkman ponder his decisions and clear his mind, as well as “[feel] free” which equates to letting go of what keeps him tied down: Lena, Corinthians, Hagar, Ruth, Macon Jr., and Guitar. Although Milkman is unsure whether he deserves the weight of his family, he is sure that he needs to escape it by leaving and literally flying away, which signals his yearning for independence and weightlessness.
