A serviceman wrote about a bit of unintended comedy he witnessed in the army. In happened during a company inspection at the Redstone Arsenal in Alabama.

An inspection was being conducted by a colonel. Everything had gone smoothly until the officer came to the man standing next to the soldier who recalled the incident.

The colonel stopped, looked the man up and down, then snapped, "Button that pocket, trooper!"

The soldier, more than a little rattled stammered, "Right now, sir?"

"Of course right now! Was the reply.

Whereupon the soldier very carefully reached out and buttoned the flap on the colonel’s shirt pocket.
