    Thank you for serving our nation. Be careful on this deployment, and don’t worry, you’ll find your wives and girlfriends just like you left them (hot and freshly “loved”). Your wives will be waiting for you on the dock, divorce papers in one hand, a restraining order in the other. Your girlfriends will be waiting for you too, pregnant, with a court subpoena child support to deliver as a special welcome home gift for you. Either way, you’ll end up paying alimony, child support, and a mortgage for a home where you don’t even live. As an added bonus, you can kiss half your military retirement goodbye, so that’s something to look forward to. And if you don’t pay up, false allegations of abuse will reward you with a trip to jail and fun times navigating the criminal court system. Not to worry, you can live in the barracks again since you won’t have any money anyway when it’s all said and done.
    We look forward to your safe return!
