The Prayers of Military Officers

One day, three O-6s were hiking together and unexpectedly came upon a wide, raging, violent river.

They needed to get to the other side, but had no idea of how to do so.

The Air Force Colonel called out to God, praying, "Please God, give me the strength to cross this river." POOF!
God gave him big arms and strong legs, and he was able to swim across.
It did, however, take him more than an hour and he almost drowned a couple of times.

Seeing this, the Army Colonel prayed to God saying, "Please God, give me the strength and tools to cross this river."
God gave him a rowboat and oars.
He was able to row across but it still took almost an hour, it was very rough, and he almost capsized several times.

The Navy Captain saw how things worked out for the other two, so when he prayed to God, he said, "Please God, give me the strength, tools, and the intelligence to cross this river."
God turned him into a Marine Lance Corporal.

He looked at the map, hiked upstream a couple of hundred yards, and walked across the bridge.

I thought the only thing O-6s pray for is a brigadier's or rear admiral's star.  :)

Lol - indeed, they have their subordinates or the team to do the job. :angel::)
