Do you guys remember that SNL skit about the Navy from the 70's? I just love that line, "It's not just a job. It's $96.78 a week." http://scoopdeck.navytimes.com/2015/02/16/video-snls-hilarious-navy-commercial-parody-from-1979/ I've used that a couple of times when asked what attracted our son to the military. In our circles, that question is never asked with genuine curiosity, so why bother giving a genuine answer? Plus, I'm known to be flip.
