The admiral says he can do better. They go to the docks and there's a sailor way up top in the Crow's Nest. He yells out, "Sailor, get down here now. Jump into the water from there." The sailor did and the Admiral says, "Now that's courage."

The Marine general calls them pussies and says watch this. They pull up to the main gate off the marine base and he tells the sentry to pull his side arm and shoot the marine next to him. As ordered, the marine did just that. "Now that is true courage."

The Army general said, "Watch this." He takes them to a random battalion getting ready for a Command and Staff meeting. There's an enlisted man working on some PowerPoint slides and the General says, "Sargent, i need you to add in a few more slides with pictures, animation, and some information i'm about to give you." The Sargeant looks at him and says, "**** you, General. Make the ******* lieutenant do it." The General looks at everyone and says, "Now that's true courage."
​​​It's Air Force... two words. But you're an Army officer, so it's most likely too difficult for you to spell.

I asked my little bro what achievement medals (XBOX of PS4) and how many of them are required before he can pin O-4. He still doesn't know.

LOL! Is it true that in order to make O-4 in the Army, all you have to do is count to 10 with your left foot?

Don't know. I purposely tanked the board because I had orders to separate (medical retirement) two months later and didn't want to waste $700.00 on the new uniform that brought into service a few months before hand.

Having my signature block say CPT(P), SC (Captain Promotable) It meant nothing to me and did nothing financially for me.

You'd fit right in with the Marines, they don't like independent thinkers.

You seem just a little too happy about that. You prefer your orgasms on the other side of a man?

I told a guy that once, he looked at me and said he knew about those jokes. I told him to come here up the ladder, look at that door what do you see. A lock! Yes we did have keys to our P3s

Hmmmm. I wonder why the Navy has to lock their airplanes? To keep the gays from having their trysts while under way? Perhaps.

There is a difference between being an officer and an illiterate failed ROTC coder. However, it's YOUR thread, initiated in keeping with your "look at me" image.

Believe me, making E-8 meant nothing to me and it REALLY did nothing financially for me!

Yeah, the Army Captain doesn't know how to spell Air Force or Xbox. Apparently, literacy is not a requirement for Army officers.

That's sort of what my father, an Army Master Sergeant, use to say. He'd say "Brains are" instead of 'literacy is'.

An E-8 is just an E-7 that was not smart enough to get out at 20. Put my papers in and a month later I came out on the E-8 promotion list. Said no thank you, retired and went to work for a civilian firm the next day for considerably more pay. Plus I started drawing my retirement check.
