And that settles it!

Forwarded to me from my Father's Old Soldiers network, which, even though I"m retired, I don't qualify for - but Bill the Rotorhead, though still serving, as a Vietnam Vet, does (heheheheheheheheh).

GOD Said......

A Soldier, a Sailor, an Airman, a Marine and a Coastie got into an argument about which branch of the service was "The Best." The arguing became so heated the five servicemen failed to see an oncoming truck as they crossed the street. They were hit by the truck and killed instantly. [Hey, no one said we were bright....]

Soon, the five servicemen found themselves at the Pearly Gates of Heaven. There, they met Saint Peter and decided that only he could be the ultimate source of truth and honesty. So, the five servicemen asked him, "Saint Peter, which branch of the United States Armed Forces is the best?"

Saint Peter replied, "I can't answer that. However, I will ask God what He thinks the next time I see Him. Meanwhile, thank you for your service on Earth and welcome to Heaven."

Some time later the five servicemen see Saint Peter and remind him of the question they had asked when first entering Heaven. The five servicemen asked Saint Peter if he was able to find the answer. Suddenly, a sparkling white dove lands on Saint Peter's shoulder. In the dove's beak is a note glistening with gold dust. Saint Peter opens the note, trumpets blare, gold dust drifts into the air, harps play crescendos and Saint Peter begins to read the note aloud to the four servicemen:

MEMORANDUM FROM THE DESK OF THE ALMIGHTY ONE

TO: All Former Soldiers, Sailors (both versions), Airmen, and Marines

SUBJECT: Which Military Service Is the Best

1. All branches of the United States Armed Forces are honorable and noble.

2. Each serves America well and with distinction.

3. Serving in the United States military represents a great honor warranting special respect, tribute, and dedication from your fellow man.

4. Always be proud of that.

Warm regards,

GOD, USARMY, (Retired)

Hat tip, as JMH would say, to Argghhh! Senior.

Wonder how long it will take Cassandra to notice? [turn about is fair play]
