    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

    > "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
