A lot of people wonder how they came up with the design for the
military's camouflage outfits. Easy -- they patterned them after
Army and Marine food.
If you think I'm kidding about the food, ask anyone who's ever
been in the Marines or the Army. About the worst punishment you
could be given while in Boot Camp was "seconds" at the Mess Hall.
Those camouflage outfits are pretty effective though. One solider
fainted while in formation and they couldn't find him for 2 days.
One recruit found that all of the uniforms he was issued fit him
perfectly. He began to worry that he was deformed.
If you think it's really true that "old soldiers fade away" ask
any of them to put on their old Army uniforms.
During the Vietnam war, a Lieutenant asked a Marine why he was
falling back during a really fierce battle. "Didn't you hear me
say that we're outnumbered 4 to 1 ?" The Marine replied,
"I got my four Sir."
The Marine aboard ship was beyond seasick. A Navy Corpsman said,
"Can I get you something ?" The young Marine replied, "How about an island ?"
