I see the joke, but I mostly came here for the sex.

This really is a prime example of why context matters. Honestly if you had posted this under any other circumstance or any other day I probably would have had a good chuckle, rated it a four and wouldn't have given it a second thought. However the fact that you did this as a Veteran's Day comic reeks just a little of poor taste.

The comic is funny, if a little scathing. However anyone knows that timing is an essential aspect of comedy, and like a white guy telling a black joke just as his black coworker is standing behind him, you screwed up the timing on this.

A star for passable technique. The rest?...
This looks like what a recruiter implies, and what a recruit is hoping for in the back of his head. It's missing a panel, though. The one that shows the raped women starving beside their half-native children, and the American soldiers with their legs blown off. Or arms. Or the dead children in the middle of heavy arms fire. Or the homeless soldiers not supported when their PTSD makes it impossible for them to function in a peaceful society.
I've been there. I've lost friends there. It's hard to sleep when your base is under a watch because there have been grenades tossed over the walls toward restrooms and barracks. My best friend can't remember his parents, his wife, or where he lives at least 50% of the time, because he asked one of the native women if he could help her when she was crying, and she detonated a bomb that killed most of the squad.
And don't try to imply that this is just a specific character's example. There are multiple soldiers in the depictions, and there is absolutely no specific identifier of continuity between the panels.
Oh, and my grandfather smoked a shitload of weed in Vietnam. It helps after multiple instances of being ordered to fire on villages full of civilians.

Funny indeed.
