Differences in Time Definition between Civil Aircraft, Air Force, Navy, Army and Marine Corps

On some air bases the Air Force is on one side of the field and civilian aircraft use the other side of the field, with the control tower in the middle.

One day the tower received a call from an aircraft asking, "What time is it?"

The tower responded, "Who is calling?" The aircraft replied, "What difference does it make?"

The tower replied "It makes a lot of difference.

1) If it is an American Airlines flight, it is 3 o'clock.
2) If it is an Air Force plane, it is 1500 hours.
3) If it is a Navy aircraft, it is 6 bells.
4) If it is an Army aircraft, the big hand is on the 12 and the little hand is on the 3.
5) If it is a Marine Corps aircraft, it's Thursday afternoon and 120 minutes to "Happy Hour."

:D:D:D:D I love it! Sounds like the Marines! Something "Chesty" Puller would have said!



Lol, Rooster, that looks much like "high spirits" and optimism. And wasn't Lieutenant General "Chesty" Puller one of the most known and most decorated Marines?



@Marianne: Yes he was! He was also a heavy drinker! LOL


Ouch - that was less good, but by then, mentalities and health care were, somehow, different.

These marines started early.  :D


Lol, T(h)ink, they don't look like "fit for service" ...
