Here's a little something you all might get a kick out of:
Some words of wisdom from an ex-military guy:
> "A slipping gear could let your M203 grenade launcher fire when you least expect it. That would make you quite unpopular in what's left of your unit," -Army's magazine of preventive maintenance.
> "Aim towards the Enemy." -Instruction printed on US Rocket Launcher
> "When the pin is pulled, Mr. Grenade is not our friend." -US Marine Corps
> "Cluster bombing from B-52s is very, very accurate. The bombs are guaranteed to always hit the ground." -USAF Ammo Troop
> "If the enemy is in range, so are you." -Infantry Journal
> "It is generally inadvisable to eject directly over the area you just bombed" -US Air Force Manual
> "Whoever said the pen is mightier than the sword obviously never encountered automatic weapons." -Gen. MacArthur
> "Try to look unimportant; they may be low on ammo." -Infantry Journal
> "You, you, and you . . . Panic. The rest of you, come with me," -US Marine Corp Gunnery Sgt.
> "Tracers work both ways." -US Army Ordnance
> "Five second fuses only last three seconds." -Infantry Journal
> "Don't ever be the first, don't ever be the last, and don't ever
volunteer to do anything." -U. S Navy Swabbie
> "Bravery is being the only one who knows you're afraid." -David Hackworth
> "If your attack is going too well, your walking into an ambush." -Infantry Journal
> "No combat ready unit has ever passed inspection." -Joe Gay
> "Any ship can be a minesweeper... once." -Anon
> "Never tell the Platoon Sergeant you have nothing to do." -Unknown Marine Recruit
> "Don't draw fire; it irritates the people around you." -Your Buddies
> "If you see a bomb technician running, follow him." -USAF Ammo Troop
