    A Soldier, a Sailor, an Airman, and a Marine get into an argument about
    what armed force is the best. The argument gets so heated that they fail
    to see an on-coming truck. They are hit and killed instantly. When they
    arrive in heaven, they see Saint Peter at the Pearly Gates. So they
    decide he can settle their argument. They walk up and ask him, "Saint
    Peter, what Military Service is the best?" He thinks for a moment, then
    says, "Well, I'm afraid I can't tell you. But I'll tell you what. I'll
    talk to God next time I see Him, and I'll find out for you. In the mean
    time, welcome to heaven."

    So they enter. Later, they see Saint Peter
    while walking around, and they ask him about their question. But before
    Saint Peter can say anything, trumpets blare, a bright light shines, and
    a white dove flies out of the light with an envelope in it's beak. Saint
    Peter says, "Ah, here's the answer from the Boss." He takes the letter,
    and the dove flies off. He opens it, trumpets play, gold dust flies up,
    and Saint Peter reads aloud:

    FROM THE DESK OF GOD

    TO: SOLDIERS, SAILORS, AIRMEN, AND MARINES

    RE: WHICH SERVICE IS BEST.

    Dear Soldiers, Sailors, Airmen, and Marines,
    All branches of the United States Armed forces are truly honorable.
    One should take pride in serving with the Military. You are all
    well-trained men, all capable of pulling off your job exceedingly well.
    Therefore, there is no superior service.

    Sincerely,
    God, USMC (Ret.)

    The Marine Corps is not a branch of service, they are a department of the Navy.

    If the joke ended with "God, US army (ret)" you'd probably think it was the most hilarious thing ever :hsugh:.

    irrelevent topic nowadays, since every acronym starts with either a "J" or a "C"

    one team, one fight

    Who cares about this debate anyways?

    I know that when I go to bars, my beers will be bought for me because i'm a Marine. Only other Marines know what that feels like.

    We may never know which branch is the best, but we know which one gets the most respect.

    Though I can appreciate a good Marine (several of my closest buddies are) this can go either way. Here where I live on Long Island there have been several occasions where I've received free drinks/shots 'cause a local finds out me and my buddies are Coasties. Their reasoning is usually something about how we saved one of their friend's lives or helped them out in a distress situation. My favorite bar in my town regularly gives me a big discount on our bar tabs at the end of the night.

    The most I'll ever do is if I just get off-duty and have to run to the store before changing. Otherwise... NO
