Kagnew Station
Military Joke

Joe Wilder sent me a joke and I thought it might be a good idea to put a "Joke of the Week" on the Kagnew page, lighten things up a bit. If I get enough responses, I'll rotate a new one in each weekend, posting them in the order of date received. All I ask is that they have something to do with the military, and of course be funny! If you have a good one, use the email link on the home page and send it to me.

During training exercises, a lieutenant who was driving down a muddy back road encountered a jeep stuck in the mud with a red-faced colonel at the wheel. "Your jeep stuck, sir?" asked the lieutenant as he pulled alongside. "Nope," replied the colonel, coming over and handing him the keys. "Yours is."

Something different, a cartoon sent in by Al Marzian, 66-69 ASA Tract C 05H20 A Company Ditty Bopper:
Baby Boomers in Retirement

A new manager took over a company. After about a month, he noticed that one employee, a man in his early forties, stood out above everyone else. Any job he was assigned was done jam-up and on time.

But he also noticed that the man was habitually late in arriving at work by about 15 to 20 minutes. So he called the man in to discuss this only flaw in his work.

After some general discussion, he told the man that he could not help but notice he was late for work every morning. He asked the man if he had any problem that was causing this and was told "Not really".

He then asked if he had this problem at his previous job and was told "Yes sir, I did".

So he asked "What did the people you worked for previously say to you when you came in late, then?"

The man answered by saying "Well, sir, they usually just said 'Good morning, Sergeant Major' ".

(True Story)
In the Company B dayroom at Kagnew were two Coke machines. The machines held locally bottled Coke products. Local men would service the machines on Tuesday and Friday but by Wednesday and Saturday they would be empty. One day I watched as the locals serviced the machines, only filling them about one-third of the way. I asked them to fill the machines completely because they sat empty much of the time.

The men responded, "But sir, we never sell more than this."

As a group of soldiers stood in formation at an Army Base, the Drill Sergeant said, "All right! All you idiots fall out."

As the rest of the squad wandered away, one soldier remained at attention. The Drill Instructor walked over until he was eye-to-eye with him, and then raised a single eyebrow.

The soldier smiled and said, "Sure was a lot of 'em, huh, sir?"
