Heaven Street Guards

 

There were two old Marines who had been life-long friends. Both

served in the Corps for 30 years and had been close in

retirement as well. They shared many experiences and were never at

a lack of words when it came to sea stories of days gone bye.

 

Mort was a little older than Sam and was now preparing for his

final muster. As they sat together in the hospital room, Sam said

to Mort, 'Mort we have been friends for over 50 years and I'd like

to ask a favor. When you leave this world and get to heaven, could

you find a way to tell me if the Marines are truly guarding the

streets of heaven?'

 

Mort thought on this for a moment and said to Sam, 'Sam because we

have shared so much throughout our lives and have been friends for

so long, I will find a way to answer your question'.

 

A few hours later, Mort stood his final muster and was gone.

 

Late one night about two weeks after Mort's passing, Sam was

awakened by a sound in his bedroom. He sat up in bed and said,

'Who is there?'

 

Mort replied saying, Sam, it is me, Mort'.

 

Sam said it can't be Mort, he has gone on to meet his maker.

 

'I know', said Mort. 'You asked me to let you know if Marines were

guarding the streets of heaven and here I am'. 'I have some good

news and some bad news for you Sam.'

 

'What's the good news?' asked Sam.

 

'It's true', said Mort. 'Marines are guarding the streets of

heaven.'

 

'That's great news', said Sam. 'What's the bad news?'

 

Mort said, 'You're on the duty roster for next Thursday.'
