Army Recruit

The  new army recruit was given guard duty at 2 a.m.  He did his best for awhile, but at about 4 a.m. he went to sleep.  He awakened to find the officer of the day standing before him.

Remembering the heavy penalty for being asleep on guard duty,  this smart young man kept his head bowed for another moment and looked upward and reverently said, "A-a-a-men!"
