A new soldier was on sentry duty at the main gate
with orders to let no car enter unless it displayed
a special sticker.

A long, black car drove up carrying a general.

"Halt, who goes there?" Challenged the sentry.

The chauffeur, a corporal, replied, "General Wheeler."

"I'm sorry," the sentry said. "I can't let you through
without a special sticker on your vehicle."

The general ordered the corporal to drive on.

"Halt!" The sentry shouted. "You really cannot
drive through without a sticker. I have orders
to shoot, if you persist in trying to drive. "

"I'm telling you, corporal," the general repeated.

The sentry walked up to the rear window, and
leaned forward to address the general.

Sir! I'm new at this." He said. "Do I shoot you
or the driver?"


An officer walked up to a private at the Post Exchange.

"Soldier," he asked. "Do you have change for a dollar?"

"Sure, buddy!" replied the private looking for change.

"Private!" the officer admonished. "That is no way to
address an officer! Now let's try it again. Do you have
change for a dollar?"

The private snapped to attention.

"No, SIR!"
