‘Never Underestimate A Navy Chief’





The rain had stopped and there was a big puddle in front of the bar just outside the VFW! A rumpled old Navy Chief Petty Officer was standing near the edge with a fishing line in the puddle!! A curious young Marine fighter pilot came over to him and asked what he was doing…

"Fishing!"

… The old Chief simply said…

"Poor old loon…"

… The Marine thought to himself, and invited the Chief into the bar for a drink! As he felt he should start a conversation while they were sipping their beer & spirits, the young jet pilot winked at another pilot and asked the Chief…

"How many have you caught today?"

 "You're number 14!"

… The Chief answered, taking another sip from his double shot of 12 year old Scotch…

"Two Air Force, three Army and nine Marines!”
