Mr. Roberts, do you know any military protocol for entering a vehicle with a senior officer?
Lt. Bud Roberts, Jr.
Sir, yes, sir. One of the first things I learned at NROTC. When entering a vehicle with a senior officer, the junior officer enters first and the senior officer last, so when exiting the vehicle, the senior officer can exist first and the junior officer last.
Lt. Cmdr. Harmon 'Harm' Rabb, Jr.
You're the junior officer, Bud.
