Aim High

Plenty of Squid humor on the board; thought I would show the fly-boys they aren't forgotten:


The chief of staff of the US Air Force decided he would personally
intervene in the recruiting crisis affecting all of our armed services.
He directed a nearby Air Force base to be opened, and that all
eligible young men and women be invited.
 
As he and his staff were standing near a brand new F-15 Fighter, a pair
of twin brothers who looked like they had just stepped off a Marine
Corps recruiting poster walked up to them. The chief of staff walked up
to them, stuck out his hand and introduced himself.
 
He looked at the first young man and asked, "Son, what skills can you
bring to the Air Force?"
 
The young man looks at him and says,
"I'm a pilot!"
 
The general gets all excited, turns to his aide and says, "Get him in
today, all the paper work done, everything, do it!"
 
The aide hustles the young man off. The general looks at the second
young man and asked, "What skills to you bring to the Air Force?"
 
The young man says, "I chop wood!"
 
"Son," the general replies, "we don't need wood choppers in the Air
Force, what do you know how to do?"
 
"I chop wood!"
 
"Young man," huffs the general, "you are not listening to me, we don't
need wood choppers, this is the 20th century!"
 
"Well," the young man says, "you hired my brother!"
 
"Of course we did," says the general, "he's a pilot!"
 
The young man rolls his eyes and says, "So what! I have to chop it
before he can pile it!"
