And then there is always this:
The reason the U. S. Armed Forces have
difficulty in coordinating and cooperating
with each other is that they do not use the
same jargon, and misunderstandings
frequently occur. For example:
If you tell the U. S. Navy to SECURE a
building, they will simply turn out the
lights and lock the door.
If you tell the U. S. Army to SECURE a
building, they will occupy the structure
and permit only persons with a proper
pass to enter.
If you tell the U. S. Air Force to SECURE a
building, they will take out a three year
lease with an option to buy.
If you tell the U. S. Marines to SECURE a
building, they will call for an air strike,
assault the structure with heavy artillery,
ground and small arms fire, capture the
facility, fortify it and hold the ground at
all costs until properly relieved.
