One day we were in the chow line and a recuit came up to one of of our drill instructors and shouted out "Sir, Private Navy requests to speak to the drill instructor Sir." The drill instuctor shouted at him, "Private who?" The recuit "Sir, Private NAVY, Sir. Then the drill instructor asked him for his full name and the rercuit replied, Sir, Ulysses Samuel Grant, Sir. The drill instructor hollowed US NAVY, whats the matter did your old man hate you. We all got a good laugh out of that one,
