....and so it begins

How to Tell the Difference Between the Branches of the US Armed Forces!

If you give the command "SECURE THE BUILDING", here is what the different services would do:

The NAVY would turn out the lights and lock the doors.

The ARMY would surround the building with defensive fortifications, tanks and concertina wire.

The MARINE CORPS would assault the building, using overlapping fields of fire from all appropriate points on the perimeter.

The AIR FORCE would take out a three-year lease with an option to buy the building.

ok, if that wasn't bad enough...

A General was conducting an All Service member pilot briefing in Afghanistan one day, and he posed the question: "What would you do if you found a scorpion in your tent?"

A Navy pilot said, "I'd step on it."

An Army pilot said, "I'd hit it with my boot."

A Marine pilot said, "I'd catch it, break the stinger off, and eat it."

An Air Force Pilot said, “I’d call room service and ask why there was a tent in my room.”

Two Navy pilots boarded a flight from Washington to New York. One sat in the window seat, the other in the middle seat.

Just before take-off an Army helicopter pilot got on and took the aisle seat next to the Navy guys.

He kicked off his shoes, wiggled his toes and was just settling in when the Navy pilot in the window seat said, “I think I’ll go up and get a Coke.”

“No problem,” said the Army guy, “Stay there, I’ll get it for you.” While he was gone, the Navy pilot picked up the Army pilot’s shoe and spat in it.

When the Army guy returned with the Coke, the other Navy pilot said, “That looks good. I think I’ll have one too.”

Again, the Army helicopter pilot obligingly went to fetch it, and while he was gone the Navy pilot picked up the other shoe and spat in it too.

The Army guy returned with the coke, and they all sat back and enjoyed the short flight to New York.

As the plane was landing the Army pilot slipped his feet into his shoes and knew immediately what had happened.

“How long must this go on?” he asked. “This enmity between the Navy and the Army…this hatred…this animosity…this spitting in shoes and pissing in cokes?”

Game on!

There's an Air Force guy driving from McChord to Ft Lewis, and an Army guy driving from Ft Lewis to McChord. In the middle of the night with no other cars on the road they hit each other head on and both cars go flying off in different directions.

The Air Force guy manages to climb out of his car and surveys the damage. He looks at his twisted car and says,....."Man, I am really lucky to be alive!"

Likewise the Army guy scrambles out of his car and looks at his wreckage. He too says to himself, ..... "I can't believe I survived this wreck!"

The Army guy walks over to the Air Force guy and says,...... "Hey man, I think this is a sign from God that we should put away our petty differences and live as friends instead of archrivals"

The Air Force guy thinks for a moment and says, ...... "You know, you're absolutely right! We should be friends. Now I'm gonna see what else survived this wreck"

So the Air Force guy pops open his trunk and finds a full, unopened bottle of Jack Daniels.

He says to the Army guy, "I think this is another sign from God that we should toast to our new found understanding and friendship"

The Army guy replies, "You're damn right!" and he grabs the bottle and starts sucking down Jack Daniels. After putting away nearly half the bottle the Army guy hands it back to the Air Force guy and says, "Your turn!"

The Air Force guy twists the cap back on the bottle and says, "Nahh, I think I'll wait for the cops to show up."

Haha, I love that one! I originally heard it with a priest, rabbi, and bottle of communion wine.




"The people hate the lizards and the lizards rule the people."
"Odd," said Arthur, "I thought you said it was a democracy."
"I did," said Ford, "it is."
"So," said Arthur, hoping he wasn't sounding ridiculously obtuse, "why don't the people get rid of the lizards?"
"It honestly doesn't occur to them. They've all got the vote, so they all pretty much assume that the government they've voted in more or less approximates the government they want."
"You mean they actually vote for the lizards."
"Oh yes," said Ford with a shrug, "of course."
"But," said Arthur, going for the big one again, "why?"
"Because if they didn't vote for a lizard, then the wrong lizard might get in."

The three main problems with an F-4 is that as soon as you take off your on fire, out of gas and you don't have enough altitude.

While we're re-circulating ancient groaners...

A Jarhead, a Zoomie and a Squid all hit the head at the same time to offload a little beer.

The Jarhead finishes up, washes his hands, reels off about 6 feet of towels, dries them and says "The Marine Corps taught me to be clean."

The Zoomie likewise completes the task at hand, washes up, takes one square of towel, dries his hands and says "The Air Force taught me to be thrifty."

The Squid shakes it off and heads for the door saying "The Navy taught me not to piss on my hands."




Be careful when following the masses. Sometimes the M is silent.

What do you call a marine with an IQ of 100?
A platoon.
Why do marines have one more brain cell than a horse?
So they don't poop while marching.

From Humor in Uniform, “Reader’s Digest”.

A printed sign over the paper towel dispenser in an Army barracks head: “Why take two when one will do?”

Someone had scrawled: “For gracious living”.



Look about you.

Actually saw this sign in a dining facility in Kandahar: "Do not put cheese in the toaster."

Most formidable Army in the world. Cracks me up every time I think of it.

There was a model of a helicopter above the desk at MEPS when I went for processing...
I asked what it was for. The Sergeant at the desk replied "it helps determine what branch you go to. "
You see, if you see that helicopter and say:

"Nice chopper" you go Army

"Sweet bird! " you go Navy

"Cool helo" you go Air Force

... now you point and grunt "ooh ooh ooh" you end up a Marine!

Guess what my response was? Semper Fi gentlemen!




I shall respect you until you open your mouth, from that point on, you must earn it yourself.

That's funny. On a bunker in a remote COP in Afghanistan I saw the phrase "If you can dodge a rocket, you can dodge a ball!" followed by the "5 D's" written on the entry beam.
