U.S. ARMY OFFICIAL VOICE MAIL MESSAGE
Thank you for calling the United States Army. I'm sorry,
but all of our units are out at the moment, or are otherwise
engaged. Please leave a message with your country, name of
organization, the region, the specific crisis, and a number
at which we can call you. As soon as we have sorted out the
Balkans, Iraq, Korea, China, the Y2K Bug, marching up and
down the streets of Washington, D.C., and compulsory
"Consideration Of Others" training, we will return your call.
Please speak after the tone, or if you require more options,
please listen to the following numbers:
If your crisis is small, and close to the sea, press 1 for
the United States Marine Corps.
If your concern is distant, with a temperate climate and good
hotels, and can be solved by one or two low risk, high altitude
bombing runs, please press 2 for the United States Air Force.
Please note this service is not available after 1630 hours,
or on weekends. Special consideration will be given to
customers requiring satellite or stealth technology who can
provide additional research and development funding.
If your inquiry concerns a situation which can be resolved by a
bit of grey funnel, bunting, flags and a really good marching
band, please write, well in advance, to the United States Navy.
Please note that Tomahawk missile service is extremely limited
and will be provided on a first-come, first-served basis.
If your inquiry is not urgent, please press 3 for the Rapid
If you are in real hot trouble, please press 4, and your call
will be routed to the United States Army Special Operations
Command. Please note that a compulsory credit check will be
required to ensure you can afford the inherent TDY costs.
Also be aware that USASOC may bill your account at any time
and is not required to tell you why, as it will be classified.
If you are interested in joining the Army and wish to be
shouted at, paid little, have premature arthritis, put your
wife and family in a condemned hut miles from civilization,
are prepared to work your ass off daily, risking your life,
in all weather and terrain, both day and night, and whilst
watching Congress erode your original benefits package,
then please stay on the line. Your call will shortly be
connected to a bitter passed-over Army Recruiter in an old
strip mall down by the Post Office.
Have a pleasant day, and thank you again for trying to
contact the United States Army.
