Overview

If laughter is the best medicine, then look no further to cure whatever ails you. The column “Offbase,” formally known as “Humor in Uniform,” has appeared in the Reader's Digest magazine for over half a century, and has published more than 3,500 jokes, quotes, and funny stories from the more than a million readers who have submitted them. This volume—from the world’s #1 source of humor—contains laugh-out-loud gems from one of Reader’s Digest’s most popular columns.

 

This side-splitting collection of humor delivers hundreds of the best jokes, anecdotes, cartoons, quotes, and stories from men and women in the armed forces or their families proving that life is often funnier than fiction. Such as:

·         From a Family Member: My son regaled me with stories about how they do things in the modern Air Force. Being an old Air Force man myself, I scoffed at their complicated methods. “That’s not the way we did it when I was in the service,” I said. “Yeah,” he shot back. “But when you were in, there were only two pilots, Wilbur and Orville”      

— Ted Shirley

·         From an Army Soldier: Our Army Unit was overseas conducting maneuvers with the Marines. On shift one night, a Marine asked my sergeant where he was from. “I’m originally from Central America,” said the sergeant. “Oh, yeah?” asked the Marine. “Kansas?”

— David Denbek

·         From Iraq: At the end of a tough day in Iraq, my daughter, the airman, collapsed onto the first seat in the transport truck, forcing everyone else to climb over her. “Private!” hollered the sergeant, “Skinny girls get in the back so when we men get on with our weapons and equipment, we don’t have to climb over you. Have I made myself clear?” Suddenly my daughter perked up, “Do you really think I’m skinny?”

—    Margaret Culbertson

·         About the Military: A soldier stationed at Fort Bliss, Texas, actually got a letter addressed to “Fort Ignorance.” “How did you know where to deliver it?” she asked the mailman. “We were stumped at first,” he admitted. “But then I remembered, ignorance is bliss.”

— William De Graf

 

For yourself, a friend, or family member—what could be better than the gift of laughter?

    Very cood collectin well worth the price

    The book is very entertaining especially for those of us who have served in the military. brings back many memories of incidents in my military career. My only compliant is the assinine way in which the accounting department ALWAYS takes the money off the HIGHEST gift card on file to pay for the selection. It never uses anything off the gift cards that are nearly used up The excuse is "the computer automatically takes the money off the card". Well, change the damn computer program and use the gift cards with the lowest amount FIRST. You are only allowed to have 3 gift cards on file at a time. They want you to cancel out one of the cards to allow a new one to be added.(Such as when a relative gives a gift card for Christmas or Birthday) ACCOUNTING DEPARTMENT NEEDS TO GET THEIR ACT TOGETHER AND CHANGE THEIR BILLING SYSTEM!!!

    I agree with review about using gift card with least amount on it first. Does that not make sense? Come on now get it together.
