Military humor

Here’s another bit of WWII military humor.

A lieutenant fresh from jumping instructions was seated next to a sergeant in a parachute regiment during a night-time exercise. The Lt. looked very pale and frightened, so the sergeant struck up a conversation.

“Sacared Lieutenent?” he asked.

“No, just a bit apprehensive,” the lieutenent replied.

“What’s the difference?”

“Apprehension means I’m scared with a collage education.”

From The GI War, 1941-1945, by Ralph G. Martin (Avon, 1967)
