    Two Old Marines

    There were two old Marine Warrant Officers who had been lifelong friends.

    Both Mustang Marines had served in the Corps for 30 years and had been close in retirement as well. They shared many experiences and were never at a lack of words when it came to sea stories of days gone bye.

    Mort was a little older than Sam and was now preparing for his final muster.

    As they sat together in the hospital room, Sam said to Mort, Mort we have been friends for over 50 years and I,' like to ask a favor. When you leave this world and get to heaven, could you find a way to tell me if the Marines are truly guarding the streets of heaven?

    Mort thought on this for a moment and said to Sam, Sam because we have shared so much throughout our lives and have been friends for so long, I will find a way to answer your question.

    A few hours later, Mort stood his final muster and was gone.

    Late one night about two weeks after Morts passing, Sam was awakened by a sound in his bedroom. He sat up in bed and said Who's there?

    Mort replied, "Sam, it's me, Mort

    Sam said, "It can't be Mort, he has gone on to meet his maker".

    I know, said Mort. You asked me to let you know if Marines were guarding the streets of heaven and here I am. I have some good news and some bad news for you Sam.

    What is the good news asked Sam.

    It's true, said Mort. Marines are guarding the streets of heaven.

    That's great news, said Sam. What's the bad news?

    Mort said, You are the Officer of the Day next Thursday.
