Sgt. Hartman: Do any of you people know who Charles Whitman was? ... None of you dumbasses knows? Private Cowboy.

Pvt. Cowboy: Sir, he was that guy who shot all those people from that tower in Austin Texas, sir!

Sgt. Hartman: That's affirmative. Charles Whitman killed 12 people from a 28 story observation tower at the University of Texas from distances of up to 400 yards. Anybody know who Lee Harvey Oswald was? Private Snowball.

Pvt. Snowball: Sir, he shot Kennedy, sir!

Sgt. Hartman: That's right, and do you know how far away he was?

Pvt. Snowball: Sir, it was pretty far, from that book suppository building, sir! [crowd laughs]

Sgt. Hartman: All right, knock it off. 250 feet. He was 250 feet away and shooting at a moving target. Oswald got off three rounds with an old Italian bolt action rifle in only six seconds and scored two hits, including a head shot. Do any of you people know where these individuals learned how to shoot? Private Joker.

Pvt. Joker: Sir, in the marines, sir!

Sgt. Hartman: In the marines, outstanding. Those individuals showed what one motivated marine and his rifle can do. And before you ladies leave my island, you'll all be able to do the same thing!
