Got this from Quora and it was written by John J. Peloquin.
When I was much younger, my parents came to visit us. My dad was USMC MSgt. in the Pacific Theater in WWII and a China Marine. One day while my dad was in the back room on the couch watching TV, a young high school girl rang the door selling something associated with her high school’s ROTC program. Upon hearing this, I asked her if she was going to have a career in the military. She replied emphatically “Oh no. I’m going into the Army.” My dad had tears in his eyes from laughing.
