A New Twist on War Stories

For those of us who have spent time in or around the military, there’s a common joke.

The only difference between a fairy tale, a sea story and a war story is how they begin:

    A fairy tale begins with “Once upon a time…”
    A sea story begins with “Now, this is no lie…”
    A war story begins with “No $#!+, there I was…”

It turns out that they all end the same way:

“I’m Brian Williams, NBC News.”
