| Del All Thought I'd share this...
My father sent me this joke. He was in the Army, and I have an Uncle who was in the Navy, well, my boyfriend being a Marine you can imagine the fun that they have with each other.... so I thought I'd share it with you all....


An Army General, a Marine General and a Navy Admiral are all sitting around discussing whose service is better and whose troops are the bravest?

The Admiral announces to the group, "My SEALS are the BEST in the world and to prove it I'll have one do the impossible" as he reaches for the phone.

Well the other two commanders are in an uproar and each one promptly calls for his best soldier.

When all three representatives have arrived, the Admiral states "Since it was my idea, I'm first" and turning to the SEAL, he says " I want you to go down that cliff, swim across those 10 miles of shark infested waters, climb up that shear cliff and return with 2 bird eggs... unbroken of course."

The SEAL (being the highly trained soldier that he is) turned running towards the cliff. After performing a triple-linddy into the water, the SEAL swam across the 10 miles (all the while beating off sharks with his bare hands) and reaching the far cliff, he began climbing. Near the top of the cliff, he grabs the two eggs and starts back down (all the time, fighting off mean birds). Upon reaching the sea he swims back across (once again fighting off sharks) and climbs back up the first cliff. He then runs back over to the Admiral and hands him the 2 unbroken eggs.

The Marine General says "that wasn't nothing," and turning to the Force Recon Marine he says " I want you to go down that cliff, swim across those waters, climb that other cliff, then move across the 4 miles of un-mapped jungle and bring me back 2 eggs from the mountain on the other side of the jungle."

And with that the Force Recon moved-out. Traveling down the cliff, swimming across the sea, climbing the far cliff, moving through the jungle and upon reaching the 2 eggs, he heads back (all the while fighting off lions, tigers, bears, sharks, and mean birds). Finally reaching the General, the Marine hands him the eggs.

The Army General then says "Very nice gentlemen, but here's true bravery" and turning towards his BEST (an Airborne Infantryman), he says "I want you to go down that cliff, across that sea, up the far cliff, thru the 4 miles of un-mapped jungle, over the mountain and bring me back 2 eggs from the forest on the other side."

The Paratrooper looks at the General, then the cliff, and again back to the General, where he says, "SCREW YOU SIR!" renders a proper hand salute and walks away.

The General turns towards the other two (both with their jaws on the table) and says "Now gentlemen, that's BRAVERY."

I got a couple

Submarine Life
The new Ensign was assigned to subs, where he'd dreamed of
working since a young boy. He was trying to impress the Master Chief with his
expertise learned in Submarine School. The Master Chief cut him off quickly and
said, "Listen, 'sir', it's real simple. Add the number of times we dive to the
number of times we surface. Divide that number by two. If the result doesn't
come out even, don't open the hatch."

The young ensign
A young ensign had nearly completed his first overseas tour of
sea duty when he was given an opportunity to display his ability at getting the
ship under way. With a stream of crisp commands, he had the decks buzzing with
men and soon, the ship had left port and was streaming out of the channel. The
ensign's efficiency has been remarkable. In fact, the deck was abuzz with talk
that he had set a new record for getting a destroyer under way. The ensign
glowed at his accomplishment and was not all surprised when another seaman
approached him with a message from the captain. He was, however, a bit
surprised to find that it was a radio message, and he was even more surprised
when he read, "My personal congratulations upon completing your underway
preparation exercise according to the book and with amazing speed. In your
haste, however, you have overlooked one of the unwritten rules -- make sure the
captain is aboard before getting under way."
