From a Family Member: My son regaled me with stories about how they do things in the modern Air Force. Being an old Air Force man myself, I scoffed at their complicated methods. Thats not the way we did it when I was in the service, I said. Yeah, he shot back. But when you were in, there were only two pilots, Wilbur and Orville

Ted Shirley

From an Army Soldier: Our Army Unit was overseas conducting maneuvers with the Marines. On shift one night, a Marine asked my sergeant where he was from. Im originally from Central America, said the sergeant. Oh, yeah? asked the Marine. Kansas?

David Denbek

From Iraq: At the end of a tough day in Iraq, my daughter, the airman, collapsed onto the first seat in the transport truck, forcing everyone else to climb over her. Private! hollered the sergeant, Skinny girls get in the back so when we men get on with our weapons and equipment, we dont have to climb over you. Have I made myself clear? Suddenly my daughter perked up, Do you really think Im skinny?

Margaret Culbertson

About the Military: A soldier stationed at Fort Bliss, Texas, actually got a letter addressed to Fort Ignorance. How did you know where to deliver it? she asked the mailman. We were stumped at first, he admitted. But then I remembered, ignorance is bliss.
