The military is no stranger to jokes.

The worst prank we’ve seen at SOFREP is someone at medical calling someone at the command to tell them they were HIV-positive. Having just returned from a deployment to Thailand this person thought for the entire day that he was a dead man. In fact, when he found out, he wasn’t even angry, just relieved he had a new lease on life!

So, come on, let’s all laugh together and celebrate a day that was great for the New England settlers and not so good for the Indians.

We’ve heard it all before (well most of it) BUT, we would appreciate you sharing your funny joke or best prank with us in the comments below.

Everything goes! From basic training to funky-smelling multi-gender bathrooms, we call them “Heads” in the Navy, and “Latrines” in the Army.

Whether you’re looking for some humor during difficult family times (we all have that certain family member at the table) or you need a laugh on duty, these jokes are sure to make you feel like you’re with the boys (girls) or both, again.


Ten Jokes for ‘Family Time Is Hard’ Holidays

The major, now fuming, asks, “Troop, Do you know who I am?!? The Soldier answers, “No, Do you know who I am? “No!” answered the very angry major.
    “Good!” the troop said as he hung up the phone. Remind you of your E-4 self?
