I have stirred up a little service rivalry here:
“Derb—You should note that SMACKs (Soldier Minus Ability Coordination &
Knowledge) at the Air Force Academy (freshmen) memorize **all** the verses
of our national anthem, unlike like our lazy counterparts at West Point who
apparently only memorize the first and last.
“Altimeter Check: ‘Sir, my altitude is 7,258 feet above sea level; far, far
above that of West Point or Annapolis.’”
