    3. A Second Lieutenant saying, "Based upon my experience..."

    4. A Captain saying, "I was just thinking..."

    5. A Warrant Officer chuckling, "Watch this $#!+..."

    That's all well and good as a joke - but at least in the USMC all officers are well trained in land navigation. But I have seen the oddballs that just don't grasp it and couldn't nav their way out of a paper bag.

    I've heard similar versions of the joke in the Marines but with a Captain saying, "Watch this" and a major saying "I've been thinking."

    That's funny - in the Marines all you hear about is the "Old Corps." That's nothing new, and it will always be that way. The "Old Corps" always was and will be the day before you joined.
