  1. Jeff Bacon was kind enough to give permission for free use of his material and I published many of them in the quarterly USS Forrestal Association’s Newsletter 15-20 years ago. Thanks, Jeff! They’re still funny.


  2. Forgot to mention one that I think should have been included. A new pilot fresh out of training I standing with a frown on his face while his wife is reading his Orders and saying, “Ooh! COD!”
