True Bravery (Kevin Anthony Scaldeferri)
(military, chuckle, heard it)
From the rec.humor.funny joke archives.

[I heard this from a friend, Sandro Fouche. Don't know where he got it from] One day, a general of the army, an admiral, and an air force general are having an argument about whose branch of the military is braver. So the admiral yells to a passing sailor, "Sailor, catch that falling anchor!" The sailor snaps to attention, shouts, "Yes, sir!", runs under the anchor, and is crushed to death trying to catch it. The admiral turns to the others and says "Gentlemen, that was bravery." The army general says, "That's nothing," and yells, "Private, stop that moving tank!" The private snaps to attention, shouts "Yes, sir!" and is crushed under the tank while trying to stop it. The army general turns back to the others and says, "Gentlemen, that took guts." Finally, the air force general takes his turn. "Airman, catch that landing plane." The airman snaps to attention and shouts "F*ck you, sir." The air force general turns to the others and says, "Gentlemen, _that_ took balls."
