|An army major to wife, he would be late home because dirty magazines had been found in the barracks, and the soldiers responsible were facing serious disciplinary action.|
"The punishment sounds a little harsh," she said. "After all, most of the soldiers have pictures of women on the walls of their quarters."
"No, honey," he explained patiently. "Dirty magazines means the clips from their rifles had not been cleaned properly!"
|Since the army is gradually talking over more and more functions of the police, there is much heartburning in police circles.|
A constable who could not take the reduction of his status much longer, got talking to a jawan, "Bhai, I am told that you jawans of the army have to spend many years on the borders before you get leave. Meanwhile, your wives go on bearing children. Is this really true? How do you treat these ready-made children planted on you?"
The jawan replied cooly, "I do not think this is a common occurrence. But when it takes place we enrol these ready-made children, as you call them, into the police."
|United State Air Force has a high security, super secret base in Nevada, known simply as "Area 51?"|
One afternoon, a Cessna landed at this "secret" base. The aircraft was immediately impounded and the pilot was interrogated. The pilot's story was that - he took off from Vegas, got lost & spotted the Base just as he was about to run out of fuel.
The Air Force started a full FBI background check on the pilot & held him overnight during the investigation. By the next day, they were finally convinced that the pilot really was lost & wasn't a spy. They are fueled his airplane, threatened him that if he lands again he would spend the rest of his life in prison, and let him go.
The next day, to the total disbelief of the Air Force personnel, the same Cessna landed there again.
Once again, the MP's surrounded the plane... only this time there were two people in the plane.
The same pilot jumped out & said, "Do anything you want to me, but my wife is in the plane and you have to tell her where I was last night!"
|It was during the World War II. The army transport was several days out of New York, and running without lights in the submarine zone.|
Some of the fellows were having a little sociable game of poker. In the midst of some friendly kicking and re-kicking, there was a mighty impact against the boat.
All was quiet for a moment and then a voice rang out: "We Are Torpedoed!"
All the card players but one jumped to their feet.
"Hold on, fellows !" shouted the one who remained seated. "You cannot leave me now, I've got four Aces !!!"
