A Little Humor: Young Man With Navy Recruiter

I visited a U.S. Navy recruiter on my 17th birthday in 1969. 

The recruiter, a tough, old chief petty officer, asked me if I could swim. 

“Why, aren’t there enough ships?”

The recruiter then asked me if I would be interested in submarine duty.

“Hell, no. I ain’t getting on any ship that sinks on purpose.”

The exasperated recruiter then asked me why I wanted to join the Navy.

“Well, my uncle thought my joining the Navy would be a good idea.”

“What does your uncle do for a living?” the recruiter asked.

“He’s in the Army.”
