I'll let you guys get away with it...This Time!

I think that Intra-Service Rivalry is a good thing and keeps all working harder.

But it does remind me of another joke:

A Chief Petty Officer and a Marine Sgt. were both in the head at the urinals.
The CPO finished first and went to the sink and started washing his hands.

The Marine finished, zipped up and started heading out the door.

The Chief called to him, "Hey Sgt., Don't they teach you to wash your hands after using the head in the Marines."

The Marine replied, "No Chief, they teach us not to piss on our hands!"

The most important thing is a mutual respect.

Being Infantry I have the most for our Navy Corpsmen.

Can you imagine being at the Navy recruiters office. You choose Corpsmen as an MOS because he told you most corpsmen end up at Naval Hospitals with all the Pretty Nurses....you do Basic..then Advanced Training...and then all of a sudden:

YOU'RE IN THE MARINE CORPS!

I agree, I do not think any service is better than the other. With that being said I do feel we are a step above the Coast Guard since we actually see much more action than they do. Then again us Army and Marine guys see more action that them Air Force and Navy guys do too. I need to rethink this "no better than the next" thing.

JUST KIDDING GUYS, we all lay down our lives and serve to protect the American way of life and make it better for ourselves and the next immigrant.

Heard this one a while back .
" Most of the intra-service rivalry comes from mis-communication .

You tell a Salior to "Secure" a bulding , He turns off the lights ,
locks the door and goes home .

You tell a Marine to "Secure" a bulding , He'll have a battleship drop
smoke , a Harrier straff it , two assalt teams hit it top and bottom ,
and clear it floor by floor .

You tell a Soldier to "secure" a bulding , He'll have Artillery level every
thing near it , Rangers start at the top Infantry start at the bottom ,
the Enginers build burms around it , and make nothing leaves or enters .

You ask an Airman to "secure" a Building , He'll go out and get a long
term lease with an option to buy ."

I was in the AF during DS, I didn't have to shoot at anybody, but I worked my A** off, a Scud hit our base, we could have been easily killed just as quick as anybody else.

Okay,

Now I have to chime in. I was in the Navy for eight years during the Vietnam war. Here is one of my favorite military jokes:

An admiral, a Marine general, an Army general and an Air Force general were in the O club drinking and the subject of bravery came up. Each insisted that his service had the bravest personnel. To settle the argument they visited several military facilities.

First, they went to Camp Pendelton. The Marine general pulled a rifle squad aside and ordered them to charge directly into the line of fire of a machine gun. They did, without a single question. "Now, that is bravery." The general said

Then, the Army general took the group to Fort Benning. He ordered an entire platoon of soldiers to jump from a plane, without their parachutes. They did, without question. "Now, that is bravery." The general said.

Not wanting to be outdone, the Air Force General took the group to Lowry AFB and ordered a complete F-16 squadron to place their aircraft into a dive and not pull out until ordered. They did and they flew right into the ground without question. "Now that is bravery." The general said.

The Admiral took the group to Coronado Island and they went onto the flight deck of the largest aircraft carrier in port. The admiral looked up in the rigging and noticed a seaman working aloft. He grabbed a bullhorn and ordered the sailor to jump.

F*** YOU! the seaman shouted, wagging a middle finger at the flag officers. Now, that is real bravery.
