Denny's Domain

This regularly appearing section contains jokes and puns and other "groaners" provided by our resident humorist Dennis Donati. If you enjoy puns as much I do, you should enjoy this page.

Denny was a Signals Officer (I think that means he used a big blanket and lots of smoke for his "signals") in HQ Battery in 1970-1971 so send him a message if you would like to contribute to his ever expanding repertoire.

Kilroy was Here

He is engraved in stone in the National War Memorial in Washington, DC, back in a small alcove where very few people have seen it. For the WWII generation, this will bring back memories. For the younger folks, it's a bit of trivia that is a part of our American history. Anyone born in 1913 to about 1950, is familiar with Kilroy. No one knew why he was so well known-but everybody seemed to get into it. So who was Kilroy? Click the link to find out.
