When a soldier came to the clinic where I work for an MRI, he was put into the machine by an attractive, young technician.
Sometime later, when the examination was over, he was helped out of the machine by a far older woman. The soldier remarked, “How long was I in there for?”
In the Service
One Sunday morning, the pastor noticed little Alex standing in the foyer of the church starting up at a large plaque.
It was covered with names and small American flags mounted on either side of it.
The little boy had been staring at the plaque for some time when the pastor walked up. “Good morning, Alex,” he whispered.
“Good morning, Pastor,” he replied. Pointing up to the plaque, he asked, “Pastor, what is this?”
“Well, son, it’s a memorial to all the young men and women who died in the service.”
Soberly, they just stood together, staring at the large plaque.
Finally, little Alex’s voice, barely audible and trembling with fear, asked, “Which service, the 9:30 or the 11 o’clock?”
I went to a very smart high school. Fifty percent of my class graduated in the top half!!
