Synopsis:

Uncle John's Bathroom Reader Salutes the Armed Forces takes aim at providing the heroic, historic, and entertaining stories of America’s five armed forces: Army, Navy, Marine Corp, Air Force, and Coast Guard. Subjects include a history of the draft, dog tags then and now, schools for snipers and top guns, MASH: the true story, and things we can thank the service for, including microwaves and MREs. Here too are fascinating topics such as cartoon soldiers, from Sad Sack and Sergeant Rock to Beetle Bailey and Steve Canyon; 38 uses for the P-38 can opener; the history of the submarine; and much more. These stories vary in length, making them suitable for both brief pit stops and lingering visits to the throne.
