  • For my Military Friends "Murphy's lThoughts"

    A Purple Heart proves three things:

    1) You were smart enough to think of a plan.

    2) Stupid enough to try it.

    3) Lucky enough to survive.


    Ten second fuses only last seven seconds.

    Anything you do can get you shot, even doing nothing.

    Claymores are labelled "This side toward enemy" for a reason.

    Don't draw fire, it irritates the people around you.

    Don't ever be the first, don't ever be the last and don't ever, ever, volunteer to do anything.

    Don't look conspicuous: it draws fire.

    If it's stupid but works, it really isn't stupid.

    If the enemy is in range, so are you.

    If the pin is pulled, Mr.Grenade is *not* our friend.

    If you can't remember, then the claymore IS pointed at you.

    If your attack is going well, you have walked into an ambush.

    Incoming fire has the right of way.

    It is generally inadvisable to eject directly over the area you just bombed.

    Make it too tough for the enemy to get in and you can't get out.

    Mines are equal opportunity weapons.

    Never share a fox hole with anyone braver than you.

    Professionals are predictable, it's the amateurs that are dangerous.

    Teamwork is essential -- it gives the enemy someone else to shoot at.

    The easy way is always mined.

    The enemy invariably attacks on one of two occasions:
    a. When you're not ready for them.
    b. When you're ready for them. Either time is inconvenient and generally a bummer.

    The only thing more accurate than incoming enemy fire is incoming friendly fire.

    The quartermaster has only two sizes: too large and too small.

    Try to look unimportant, they may be low on ammo.

    When in doubt empty the magazine.

    I agree with this totally Guard Dog. For instance, when I was in the Navy, I was "thought" a few things, like:

    1. The true mean of NAVY...Never Again Volunteer Yourself.

    2. And not to forget the namesake of Navy bootcamp...."Great Lakes, IL" aka "Great Mistakes".

      Being a good recruit I bet you never went into a bar in North Chicago either did you?

        Of course not.

        Like the saying goes:

        "Admit to nothing, deny everything, and demand proof."
