January 17, 2019 Newsletter
We’ve all been talking about the Army’s latest recruitment drive. That would normally be a good thing for any advertiser but in this case, a lot of people feel this one really misses the mark. One of the models for the poster series, aimed at millennials has stated that he’ll quit the army in protest while the debate among other serving personel has been less than polite about the campaign.
Would you sign up based on being referred to as a “phone zombie” or “me, me, me millennial”? Would you want to serve alongside anyone who would describe themselves like that? We’d love to know. Hop on over to our Facebook page and join the conversation!
Let’s finish on a positive note, though, with yet another former military hero for us to cheer. Disabled former British marine Lee Spencer who lost his leg in 2014 is attempting a solo Atlantic crossing.
You can follow his progress on his website: http://www.leespencer.co.uk/

Joke: Dead Horse
A young man named Chuck bought a horse from a farmer for $250. The farmer agreed to deliver the horse the next day. The next day, the farmer drove up to Chucks house and said,
“Sorry son, but I have some bad news, the horse died.”
Chuck replied, “Well, then just give me my money back.”
The farmer said, “Can’t do that. I went and spent it already.”
Chuck said, “Ok, then, just bring me the dead horse.”
The farmer asked, “What ya gonna do with him?”
Chuck said, “I’m going to raffle him off.”
The farmer said, “You can’t raffle off a dead horse!”
Chuck said, “Sure I can, Watch me. I just won’t tell any body he’s dead.”
A month Later, the farmer met up with Chuck and asked, “What happened with that dead horse?”
Chuck said, “I raffled him off. I sold 500 tickets at five dollars a piece and made a profit of $2495.”
The farmer said, “Didn’t anyone complain?”
Chuck said, “Just the guy who won. So I gave him his five dollars back.”
