A new soldier was on sentry duty at the main gate. His orders were clear: no car was to enter unless it had a special sticker on the windshield.

A big Army car came up with a general seated in the back. The sentry said, "Halt, who goes there?"

The corporal, who was driving, said, "General Wheeler."

"I'm sorry, I can't let you through. You have to have a sticker on the windshield."

The general said, "Drive on!"

The sentry replied, "Hold it! You really can't come through. I have orders to shoot if you try driving in without a sticker."

The general repeated, "I'm telling you, son, drive on!"

The sentry walked up to the rear window and said, "General, I'm new at this. Do I shoot you or your driver?"
