There he sits, in the >middle of a big, steel target, with nowhere to run, when the captain comes >on the MC and says, "Give 'em Hell, sailors! I salute you!" > > > > Now take the Marines. When the crap hits the fan, the young Marine >is kicked out of bed by his First Sergeant and puts on the muddy set of >BDUs he was wearing on the field exercise he was part of three hours >earlier. He gets no breakfast, but is told to feel free to chew on his >boots. He runs out and forms up with his rifle. Pretty soon, his company >commander, a captain, comes out, gives the Marine a sharp salute, and says, >"Give 'em Hell, Marine!" > > > > And then there's the Air Force. When the crap hits the fan, the >airman receives a phone call at his off-base quarters. He gets up, showers, >shaves, and puts on the fresh uniform he picked up from the BX cleaners the >day before. He jumps in his car and cruises through the McDonald's >drive-thru for an Egg McMuffin and Coca-Cola on his way into work. Once at >work, he signs in on the duty roster. He proceeds to his F-16, spends 30 >minutes pre-flighting it, and signs off the forms. Pretty soon the pilot, a >young captain arrives, steps into the jet, and starts the engines. Our >young airman stands at attention, gives the aviator a sharp salute, and >says, "Give 'em Hell, Captain!'
