My Men Are Brave

Daily Prompt: Groupthink
Write a post that includes dialogue between two people — other than you. (For more of a challenge, try three or more people)

General McKenzie was in charge of the Navy, and he was visiting his colleague General Marshall, who was in charge of the Army. McKenzie arrives at the military camp and he is greeted by Marshall. They both walk around the place, and McKenzie asks: “So how are your men?”

“Very well trained, Gen McKenzie.”

“I hope so. You see, my men over at the Navy are so well trained, you can see they’re the bravest men all over the country.”

“Well, my men are very brave too.”

“I’d like to see that.”

So Marshall calls one of his men and say:
“Private Johnson! I want you to stop that tank coming here with your body.”

“Are you crazy? It will kill me, you idiot! I’m out of here”

As Private Johnson runs away, Marshall turns to a bewildered McKenzie and says:
“You see? You have to be pretty brave to talk like that to a General.”
