Four retired veterans are walking down the street. When they see a sign that says "Veterans' Bar," they go in. The bartender asks for their order and they all ask for a martini. He delivers the drinks and says, "That will be 40 cents."
They can't believe their good luck. They finish the drinks and order another round, and the bartender again says, "That will be 40 cents." This is when their curiosity peaks, so one asks the bartender, "How can you afford to serve martinis for a dime apiece?"
The bartender replies, "I guess you've seen the decor here. Well, I am a retired Navy Chief and I always wanted to own a bar. Last year I hit the lottery for $45 million and decided to open this place for real veterans. Every drink costs a dime -- wine, liquor, beer all the same."
They notice four guys at the end of the bar who haven't ordered anything.
They ask, "What's with them?" The bartender says, "Oh, those are retired Marine Gunnys ... They're waiting for happy hour."
