He must've been so proud...

My dad told me a story about his time as a Recruit Division Commander at Navy boot camp at Great Lakes. One of his duties was to escort new recruits to the galley. After everyone had made it through the chow line, he sat them down and told them, "There are three rules in this galley: Shut up! Eat up! Get up!"

Checking to see that he had everyone's attention, he asked, "What is the first rule?" The look on the faces of the other RDCs was priceless as 60 recruits yelled in unison, "Shut up, Chief!"
