    A little boy was standing in front of a mirror in the restroom at John F. Kennedy Airport, when in walked a Marine staff sergeant, dressed in his dress blues. The little boy turned to the Marine and said, "Wow! Are you a Marine?"

    The Marine replied, "Why, yes I am, young man. Would you like to wear my hat?"

    "Boy, would I!," said the little boy. He took the hat and placed it on his head and turned to admire himself in the mirror.

    As he was looking in the mirror, he heard the door open and through a ray of bright light, a man entered the room. But, this was not just a man -- he was more than a man. He was an Airborne Ranger.

    The little boy turned and went over to the soldier. As he approached him, he could see the reflection in his boots. His eyes widened as he stared up at the soldier's chest full of medals and combat ribbons. He tried to speak, but he couldn't. Finally, he took a deep breath, and managed to say, "Excuse me, Sir. Are you an Airborne Ranger?"

    The Ranger replied with a thunderous voice, "Why yes, I am!! Would you like to shine my boots?"

    The little boy smiled, and said, "Oh, no sir!! I'm not a Marine. I'm just wearing his hat!"

    The major difference between Airborne and the Corps:

    In the Airborne, first you've got to go through basic training. Then the Army sends you to Fort Benning to brainwash you into jumping out of a perfectly functioning airplane. After that, assuming you survive, maybe they send you to Ranger school. If you survive that, they give you a beret of a different color and tell you you're a Ranger, one of the elite who goes places first and fights whoever doesn't want you to have them until the regular Army pukes show up.

    Or in other words, after all that expensive Army training you will be on a par with a Marine fresh out of Boot Camp who hasn't has time for the nap on his pickle suit to wear down so he can put a proper crease in it yet.

    I'm just joking, but there IS a reason we have a Marine Corps. I think you can tell whose side I'm on.

    When I was a kid growing up on a small farm, I could tell who the Marines and the Army guys were during deer season by the gunshots.

    The army guys used 20-gauge smoothbores and would get their deer with one shot. The marines would use scoped, rifled 12-gauges and have to reload their Auto-5's to get a yearling, but couldn't eat half of it because it was so blood-shot. One actually had to shoot one 10 times to kill it. His brother, one of the army guys, gave him hell for years over that one:)

    I have a friend (General Jimmy Joy Ret. USMC) who when ask 30 years ago what service he was in, gave you the prompt reply: "The crotch".

    All kidding aside....among all the fighting men in the world...ANY US fighting man is heads and tales above the rest of the armed services of the world!

    Like they said back during the Iran hostage crisis..."Let them guys go or we will send a troop of our Boy Scouts with BB guns over there to kick your arse!"
