couple of Military oriented jokes
Navy vs Marines
An old Sailor and an old Marine were sitting at the VFW arguing about who'd had the tougher career.
"I did 30 years in the Corps," the Marine declared proudly, "and fought in three of my country's wars. Fresh out of boot camp I hit the beach at Okinawa, clawed my way up the blood-soaked sand, and eventually took out an entire enemy machine gun nest with a single grenade.
"As a sergeant, I fought in Korea alongside General MacArthur. We pushed back the enemy inch by bloody inch all the way up to the Chinese border, always under a barrage of artillery and small arms fire.
"Finally, as a gunny sergeant, I did three consecutive combat tours in Vietnam. We humped through the mud and razorgrass for 14 hours a day, plagued by rain and mosquitoes, ducking under sniper fire all day and mortar fire all night. In a firefight, we'd fire until our arms ached and our guns were empty, then we'd charge the enemy with bayonets!"
"Ah," said the Sailor with a dismissive wave of his hand. "All shore duty, huh?"

On some air bases the Air Force is on one side of the field and civilian aircraft use the other side of the field, with the control tower in the middle. One day the tower received a call from an aircraft asking, "What time is it?"
The tower responded, "Who is calling?"
The aircraft replied, "What difference does it make?"
"It makes a lot of difference," the tower replied --
"If it is an American Airlines flight, it is 3 o'clock.
"If it is an Air Force plane, it is 1500 hours.
"If it is a Navy aircraft, it is 6 bells.
"If it is an Army aircraft, the big hand is on the 12 and the little hand is on the 3.
"If it is a Marine Corps aircraft, it's Thursday afternoon and 120 minutes to 'Happy Hour'."

I was always wondering why Navy and Marines don't like each other
A friend o'mine asked by some GI why he had chosen navy service, answered:
'cos our ship has a bunk and a galley.
Of course I'm also convinced that navy service is the hardest one.
I can add:
39. once a week throw your cat/dog, wife and children into the swimming pool and raise MOB alarm. Pull them out and repeat few times.

In the Air Force we call a helicopter a "Helicopter". In the Navy they call it a "Helo". In the Army they call it a "Chopper." In the Marine Corps they point at it, standing there slack-jawed and and say "Uhhhhhhhh!"
(Just kiddin'....Semper Fi, Marines!!!)
