This is a collection of humorous stories I recall from my time in the service, and shortly thereafter. It is my nature to poke fun at things I find funny, or in some cases, sad. Most, almost all, of these recollections are accurate, but a couple have been embellished a little where they needed help. I hope you enjoy reading these as much as I enjoyed writing them.
