Bill Cosby honored at the Navy Memorial

Actor Bill Cosby was at the Navy Memorial yesterday being honored for his service, reports Yeas & Nays.  He was made an honorary Chief Petty Officer.

Cosby was wearing a Navy officer's jacket and hat, though he was humble about his service in the Navy.  He told a story about not making it through a fire drill -- "I was told, because it's a drill, to go over where the dead people were because I had walked through the fire," Cosby said.  He also told reporters, "This gives me a chance to go back in my life to my Navy days and pretend that I stayed in."

He then did a stand-up comedy routine to a group of sailors in attendance.

Cosby served in the Navy for four years.
