A young Marine officer was in a car accident, but due to the heroics of another young officer the only permanent injury was to both ears, which were subsequently amputated. Since he wasn't physically impaired he remained in the military and eventually became a General. He remained, however, very sensitive about his appearance.

One day the new General was interviewing three young officers for the position of his personal aide. The first officer was a Artillery Officer and it was a great interview. At the end the General asked him, "Do you notice anything different about me?"

The young artilleryman answered, "Why yes. I couldn't help but notice you have no ears."

The General got very angry at this lack of tact and threw him out.

The second interview was with a female Supply Officer, and she was even better than the first officer, and with a better file. The General asked her the same question, "Do you notice anything different about me?"

She replied, "Well, you have no ears."

The General threw her out also.

The third interview was with a Tank Officer. He was articulate, looked extremely sharp and seemed to know more than the other two officers put together. The General wanted this guy, and went ahead with the same question, "Do you notice anything different about me?"

To his surprise the Tanker said, "Yes, you wear contact lenses."

The General was impressed and thought, what an incredibly observant young officer, and he didn't mention my ears.

"And how do you know that?" the General asked.

The Tanker replied, "Well, it's pretty hard to wear glasses with no freakin’ ears."
