Format: Paperback
Like so many baby boomers, I grew up on READER'S DIGEST. That wonderful little mag helped me become the devoted reader I am today. My favorite RD feature was the "Humor in Uniform" section. This 2008 volume from Reader's Digest Association brings together 500+ stories of military humor in action.

HUMOR IN UNIFORM divides those 500 stories into 15 sections: Basic Training, At the Front, All in the Family, Last Laugh, On the Job, Military Wisdom, etc. Sections can range from 8 to 26 pages in length.

The stories found in each section bring out the fact that wit and humor knows no bounds. Funny is funny. And, given the regimented, hidebound and bureaucratic nature of military life, military humor can be especially funny whether it comes from a naive recruit or a master sergeant who's seen everything in his 30+ years in the service.

Short and sweet: HUMOR IN UNIFORM is a fun read whether you served in the military or not. Recommended.

I have always enjoyed laughing at funny situations, but the best times, as I remember them, are when similar things occur in my own life. Laughing at oneself is the best medicine for reducing a BIG head about how great we THINK we are.

Maybe just me, but when I read these anecdotes in Readers Digest, they seem funnier. Maybe it's seeing too many at one time that reduces the humor? Still, not a bad book to read after some serious reading gets you down. Always amazes me the funny things to happen or said among our heroes in uniform.

Having been in the Air Force, currently married to a ex-sailor and worked for the Army and Navy, I can relate to most of the stories in this book. They are all humorous and often relate to civilian life as well. Well worth any cost. It will bring a wide smile to anyone's face.

If you enjoy Reader's Digest various funny columns -- then you will enjoy this book. Since I ordered all of the Reader's Digest books I don't remember if it was delivered on time from this vendor (since I was not in a rush) , but nevertheless all of the books I received were in good condition.

After 33 years in the military my husband always turns to Humor in Uniform in the Readers Digest before reading anything else so when I found this compilation of the stories in book form I grabbed it up to give it to him for Christmas. Then I decided to take it with me on a lengthy plane trip and thoroughly enjoyed it as did a couple of my seat mates along the way when they saw what I was reading, and chuckling about. I think it's still in good enough shape to give it to him and plan to order one for my brother-in-law who is also retired military. There are some stories I remember so it's not all fresh but they were still fun to read again. Not just for military but it helps when you see so much that's familiar.

This is a great collection of military anecdotes which taken as a whole is just HILARIOUS! I loved so many of these stories, even if I have heard one or two of them before. Reading this while relaxing at the Outer Banks with my wife, I had to laugh out loud several times and share some of them with her.

The only drawback to the book is that some of the stories are repeated in different chapters, or variants of the same story are seen in different parts. This still doesn't detract from how funny this book is... it really does justice to one of my favorite Reader's Digest features.
