‘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…


… 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!”


  1. Yeah, mess with The Chief!

  2. Sounds like an excellent Chief Petty Officer - - -

  3. 28 double shots and still standing? One hell of a chief'
