From staff reports:

Federal Way resident Lorna Packard is featured this month in Reader’s Digest, which selected her submission for “Humor in Uniform,” a portion of its Humor Section that shares readers’ military-related anecdotes.

Her anecdote:

Have you heard of World War II?” my husband asked our six-year-old grandson.

“Well, I’ve heard of it,” Bronson said tentatively. “But I can’t remember what game it is.”

Reader’s Digest, the world's largest paid circulation magazine, receives more than 50,000 Humor submissions a year. Reader's Digest has a global circulation of 17 million and publishes in 70 countries with 50 editions in 21 languages. For decades, Reader's Digest reigned as the best-selling magazine in the United States.
