    Default National Association of 2LTs Responds To Criticism

    Washington, D.C. – The National Association of Second Lieutenants released a statement and held a press conference today in response to almost universal criticism their members have been receiving from soldiers, Marines, and airmen.

    The statement comes on the heels of a controversial change to the military’s promotion scheme.

    The group spokesman, Second Lieutenant Jack Brietovich, was late for the press conference due to an apparent problem with his 2006 Hyundai’s GPS system. After he arrived, he then realized that he left the typed statement in his other pants — forcing him to send his driver, PFC Michael Wilson to find it.

    No, that's just how long it takes for a 2LT to become a 1LT.

    I think if someone joins the 2LT Association he should swear to be in it for a minimum of 10 years, lol.

    Is there also a 1LT Association?

    No, at that point we become the specialists of the officer realm, and have the right to organize as a mafia.
