    Outside the perimeter
    The aircraft carrier U.S.S. Abraham Lincoln was finally inching up to the pier at Pearl Harbor when the Captain of the ship noticed a sailor on the flight deck gesturing wildly with semaphore flags. He then noticed an attractive young woman standing on top of a station wagon, also waving semaphore flags.

    Always concerned about security and never having seen
    something like this, the Captain barked at his Bridge
    Signalman, "What message are those two people sending?"

    The Signalman concentrated intently and soon reported,
    "Sir, he is sending FOXTROT-FOXTROT and she is sending
    ECHO-FOXTROT."

    Not having any clue as to what these messages could mean, the Captain dispatched an armed Marine to escort the sailor back to the Bridge.

    The sailor arrived, out of breath from running up the many ladders to the bridge, and saluted smartly.

    "Seaman Endicott reporting as ordered, sir!"

    "Seaman", shouted the Captain, "Who is that woman on the pier and why are you exchanging signals FF and EF?"

    "Sir, that's my wife, Sir, and she wants to eat first!"
