Political musings from Warren E. Peterson

Best Service is Army, Navy, Marines, Air Force?

Posted by Warren Peterson on July 14, 2008

Humor from the Internet to which a friend of mine said, “I’ll drink to that!”.

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..

Sometime 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)
