A Lieutenant, a Colonel, and a Sergeant Major were all killed in a common disaster, and arrived in Heaven together, where they were met by St. Peter.
St. Peter asked them, “What would you like the people on Earth to say about you?”
The Lieutenant said, “I would like them to say I was a great family man and an inspiration to my children.”
The Colonel said, “I would like them to say I was a great military leader.”
The Sergeant Major said, “I would like them to say, ‘Look! He’s moving!”
