1. "Sometimes I think war is God's way of teaching us geography." - Paul
Rodriguez

2. "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.

3. "Aim towards the Enemy" - Instruction printed on US Rocket Launcher.

4. When the pin is pulled, Mr. Grenade is not our friend. (U.S. Marine
Corps)

5. Cluster bombing from B-52s is very, very accurate. The bombs always hit
the ground. (U.S. Air Force)

6. If the enemy is in range, so are you. (Infantry Journal)

7. It is generally inadvisable to eject directly over the area you just
bombed. (U.S. Air Force Manual)

8. Whoever said the pen is mightier than the sword obviously never
encountered automatic weapons. (Gen. MacArthur)

9. Try to look unimportant; they may be low on ammo. (Infantry Journal)

10. You, you, and you ..... Panic. The rest of you, come with me. (U.S.
Marine Corp Gunnery Sgt)

11. Tracers work both ways. (U.S. Army Ordnance)

12. Five-second fuses only last three seconds. (Infantry Journal)

13. Don't ever be the first, don't ever be the last, and don't ever
volunteer to do anything. (U.S. Navy Swabbie)

14. Bravery is being the only one who knows you're afraid. (David Hackworth)

15. If your attack is going too well, you have walked into an ambush.
(Infantry Journal)

16. No combat-ready unit has ever passed inspection. No inspection-ready
unit ever survived combat (Joe Gay)

17. Any ship can be a minesweeper ..... once. (Admiral Hornblower)

18. Never tell the Platoon Sergeant you have nothing to do. (Unknown Marine
Recruit)

19. Don't draw fire; it irritates the people around you. (Your Buddies)

20. Mines are equal-opportunity weapons. (Saddam Hussein)

21. If you find yourself in a fair fight, you didn't plan your mission
properly. (David Hackworth)

22. Waterproof sleeping shelters ..... aren't.

23. Smokeless powder ..... isn't.

24. Always store beer in dark places.

25. Get your first shot off fast. This may upset your enemy enough to allow
you to make your second shot count.

26. You can have peace --- or you can have freedom. Don't count of having
both at once.

27. Place your clothes and weapons where you can find them in the dark.

28. Courage is the complement of fear. A man who is fearless cannot be
courageous.

29. Peace is an extension of war by political means.

30. Anything free is worth what you pay for it.

31. When handling stinging insects, move slowly.
