Veteran's Bar
« Reply #1 on: May 20, 2007, 09:00:49 AM »

 Four retired Navy Chief's are walking down the street window shopping.   Then they
 turn a corner and see a sign that says "Veterans Bar" over the doorway of  an
 entry into an establishment that doesn't look all that well kept up. They  look
 at each other then go in. On the inside, they realize in this case, they  could
 judge the 'book by it's cover'.

 The old bartender says in a voice that carries across the room, "Come on in and
 let me pour one for you! What'll it be, gentlemen?" There seems to be a fully
 stocked bar so the men all ask for a martini. In short time the bartender serves
 up 4 iced martinis - shaken not stirred and says, "That'll be 40 cents, please."
 The four Chiefs stare at the bartender for a moment then look at each other -
 they can't believe their good luck. They pay the 40 cents, finish their martinis
 and order another round. Again, four excellent martinis are produced with the
 bartender again saying, "That's 40 more cents, please." They pay the 40 cents
 but their curiosity is more than they can stand. They've each had two martinis
 and so far they've spent less than a dollar. Finally one of the men says, "How
 can you afford to serve martinis as good as these for a dime a piece?"

 The bartender replies, "No doubt you've noticed the decor in here. And the
 outside ain't nothin' to write home about. I don't waste money on that stuff.
 But, here's my story. I'm a retired Master Chief Boatswain's Mate and I always
 wanted to own a bar. Last year I hit the lottery for $45 million and decided to
 open this place for real veterans. Every drink costs a dime -- wine, liquor,
 beer, all the same."

 "Wow. That's quite a story." says one of the men. The four of them sipped at
 their martinis and couldn't help but notice three other guys at the end of the
 bar who didn't have a drink in front of them and hadn't ordered anything the
 whole time they were there.

 One man finished his martini and, gestured at the three at the end of the bar
 without drinks and asks the bartender, "What's with them?"

 The bartender says, "Oh, those are retired Officers. They're waiting for happy
 hour."
