On Clinton's last trip to Hawaii, he went swimming at Waikiki Beach. He got caught in a riptide and was been pulled out to sea.
Three young surfers swam out to him and brought him to shore. He wanted to reward them, and asked what they would like.
The first said he wanted to be a fighter pilot, and Clinton said he would get him an appointment to the A.F. Academy.
The second one said he wanted to command a submarine. "Fine, I'll get you into the Naval Academy."
The third said he wanted to be buried at Arlington. Clinton looked puzzled and asked why such a young person was concerned about where he would be buried. "Because", said the surfer, "my father is a Vietnam Veteran, and when I go home and tell him I saved your life, he's going to kill me."
