    Military Rules:
    Army
    1. Be courteous to everyone, friendly to no one.
    2. Decide to be aggressive enough, quickly enough.
    3. Have a plan.
    4. Have a back-up plan, because the first one probably won't work.
    5. Be polite. Be professional. But, have a plan to kill everyone you meet even your friends…
    6. Do not attend a gunfight with a handgun whose caliber does not start with a "4."
    7. Anything worth shooting is worth shooting twice. Ammo is cheap. Life is expensive.
    8. Move away from your attacker. Distance is your friend. (Lateral & diagonal preferred.)
    9. Use cover or concealment as much as possible.
    10. Flank your adversary when possible. Protect yours.
    11. Always cheat; always win. The only unfair fight is the one you lose.
    12. In ten years nobody will remember the details of caliber, stance, or tactics. They will only remember who lived.
    13. If you are not shooting, you should be communicating your intention to shoot.

    Air Force
    1. Have a cocktail.
    2. Adjust temperature on air-conditioner.
    3. See what's on HBO.
    4. Ask "what is a gunfight?"
    5. Request more funding from Congress with a "killer" Power Point presentation.
    6. Wine & dine 'key' Congressmen, invite DOD & defense industry executives.
    7. Receive funding, set up new command and assemble assets.
    8. Declare the assets "strategic" and never deploy them operationally.
    9. Hurry to make 13:45 tee-time.
    10. Make sure the base is as far as possible from the conflict but close enough to have tax exemption.

    Navy
    1. Go to Sea.
    2. Drink Coffee.
    3. Paint.
    4. Deploy Marines.

    Marines
    1. Hit the Beach.

    I was in the OLDEST branch of the military for 12 years and it is fun to make fun of the young'un.

    You don't want to know what M.A.R.I.N.E stands for.

    See how it goes ?? We are all brothers, and that makes it OK to harass each other. But we are just as quick to band together when necessary. Now where did that Bluebelly Shirt go ??

    I spent 6 years in the Air Force and not one day of that was spent in a tent or out in the mud with the same benefits and pay as the grunts and the squids and the jarheads.....:)
