Which Service is the Best
A Soldier, Sailor, Airman and Marine got into an argument as to which service
was "the best." The arguing became so intense the four servicemen failed to
see an oncoming truck. They were struck and killed instantly.
Soon the servicemen found themselves at the Pearly Gates where they met St.
Peter. They decided only he could be the ultimate source of truth and
honesty. So, the four asked him, "St. Peter, which branch of the United
States Armed Forces is the best?" After a few moments he replied that he
could not answer that and would have to kick it up to God for an answer the
next time he saw Him. Meanwhile, thank you for your service on earth and
welcome to Heaven.
Some time later the four see St. Peter and remind him of the question they
had asked when first entering Heaven. Suddenly a sparkling white dove lands
on St. Peter's shoulder. there is a note, glistening with gold dust, in the
dove's beak. "This must be the answer from the Boss, let's see what it says."
He opens the note, trumpets blare, gold dust drifts into the air, harps play
crescendos, and St. Peter reads aloud to the servicemen.

TO: Soldiers, Sailors, Airmen and Marines.

Gentlemen, all branches of the United States Armed Forces are honorable and
noble. Each serves America well and with distinction. Being servicemen in the
United States Military represents a special calling warranting special
respect, tribute and dedication. Be proud of that.

GOD, USN (Ret.)​

An Army Airborne Ranger stands in the rain with a 45 pound pack on his back, 15 pound weapon in hand, after having jumped from an airplane and marched 18 miles, and says with a smile, "This is good sh!t!"

A Navy SEAL lies in the mud, 55 pound pack on his back, 15 pound weapon in hand, after having had a 10 mile swim to shore, a five crawl through swamps, and a 25 mile march in jungle, at night, through enemy positions, says with a grin, "This really is great sh!t."

A Marine, up to his nose in the stinking, bug-infested mud of a swamp with a 65 pound pack on his back and a 15 pound weapon in each hand, after jumping from an aircraft at high altitude, into the ocean, swimming 12 miles to the shore, killing several alligators to enter the swamp, then crawling 30 miles through the brush to assault an enemy camp, says, "I love this shit." An Air Force NCO sits in an easy chair in an air conditioned, carpeted office and says, "My e-mail's out? What kind of sh!t is this?"
