A Sailor, Soldier, and an Airman got into an argument about which branch
of the service was “The Best.” The arguing became so heated the three
service men failed to see an oncoming truck as they crossed the street.
They were hit by the truck and killed instantly.
Soon, the three servicemen found themselves at the Pearly gates of Heaven.
There, they met Saint Peter and decided that only he could be the ultimate
source of truth and honesty. So, the three servicemen asked him, “Saint
Peter, which branch of the Armed Forces is the best?”
Saint Peter replied, “I can’t answer that. However, I will ask God what He
thinks the next time I see Him. Meanwhile, thank you for your service on
Earth and welcome to Heaven.”
Some time later the three servicemen see Saint Peter and remind him of the
question they had asked when first entering Heaven. The three servicemen
asked Saint Peter if he was able to find the answer. Suddenly, a sparkling
white dove lands on Saint Peter’s shoulder. In the dove’s beak is a note
glistening with gold dust. Saint Peter opens the note, trumpets blare, gold
dust drifts into the air, harps play crescendos and Saint Peter begins to
read the note aloud to the three servicemen
