When this was sent to me it was prefaced with these words:
Designed by DoD Office of Heraldry: In anticipation of the “limited action” in Syria…New Shoulder Patch for US Troops in Syria…”

In Texas there is a town called New Braunfels , where there is a large German-speaking population.
One day, a local rancher driving down a country road noticed a man using his hand to drink water from the rancher’s stock pond.
The rancher rolled down the window and shouted: “Sehr angenehm! Trink das Wasser nicht. Die Kuehe haben darein geschissen.”
This means: ‘Glad to meet you! Don’t drink the water. The cows have shit in it.’
The man shouted back: “I’m from New York and just down here campaigning for Obama’s health care plan. I can’t understand you. Please speak in English.”
The rancher replied: “Use both hands.”
