A Military Funny

A Soldier, Sailor, Airman and Marine got into an argument as to which
service Was "the best." The arguing became so intense the four
servicemen failed to See an oncoming truck. They were struck and
killed instantly.

Soon the servicemen found themselves at the Pearly Gates where they
met St. Peter. They decided only he could be the ultimate source of
truth and honesty. So, the four asked him, "St. Peter, which Branch
of the United States Armed Forces is the best?" After a few moments he
replied that he could not answer that and would have to kick it up to
God for an answer the Next time he saw Him. Meanwhile, thank you for
your service on earth and welcome to Heaven.

Some time later the four see St. Peter and remind him of the question
they had asked when first entering Heaven. Suddenly a sparkling white
dove lands on St. Peter's shoulder. There is a note, glistening With
gold dust, in the dove's beak. "This must be the answer from the
Boss, let's see what it says."

He opens the note, trumpets blare, gold dust drifts into the air,
harps play Crescendos, and St. Peter reads aloud to the servicemen.


TO: Soldiers, Sailors, Airmen and Marines.


Gentlemen, all branches of the United States Armed Forces are
honorable and Noble. Each serves America well and with distinction.
Being servicemen in the United States Military represents a special
calling warranting special respect, tribute and dedication. Be proud
of that.

Sincerely, GOD, MCPO USN (Ret.)

For the uninitiated, MCPO stands for Master Chief Petty Officer, the highest enlisted rank in the NAVY.
