A Soldier, a Sailor, an Airman and a Marine got into an argument about which
branch of the service was “The Best.” The arguing became so heated the four
servicemen failed to see an oncoming truck as they crossed the street.

They were hit by the truck and killed instantly.

Soon, the four servicemen found themselves at the Pearly gates of Heaven.
There, they met S…aint Peter and decided that only he could be the ultimate
source of truth and honesty. So, the four servicemen asked him, “Saint
Peter, which branch of the United States Armed Forces is the best?”

Saint Peter replied, “I can’t answer that. However, I will ask God what He
thinks the next time I see Him. Meanwhile, thank you for your service on
Earth and welcome to Heaven.”

Sometime later the four servicemen see Saint Peter and remind him of the
question they had asked when first entering Heaven and asked Saint Peter if
he was able to ask God for the answer.

Suddenly, a sparkling white dove lands on Saint Peter’s shoulder. In the
dove’s beak is a note glistening with gold dust. Saint Peter opens the note,
trumpets blare, gold dust drifts into the air, harps play crescendos and
Saint Peter begins to read the note aloud to the four servicemen:

MEMORANDUM FROM THE DESK OF THE ALMIGHTY

TO: All Former Soldiers, Sailors, Airmen, and Marines

SUBJECT: Which Military Service Is the Best

1. All branches of the United States Armed Forces are honorable and noble.

2. Each serves America well and with distinction.

3. Serving in the United States military represents a great honor warranting
special respect, tribute, and dedication from your fellow man.

4. Always be proud of that.

GOD, USMC, Retired
