Recoiless rifles aren't.

Avoid being conspicuous. This attracts fire, which will annoy the people around you.

Try to look unimportant. They may be low on ammo.

Your weapon was built by the low bidder.

The Meal, Ready to Eat. 3 lies for the price of 1. Not a meal, not ready, can't eat them.

Spartan mothers told their sons "Return with your shield, or upon it."
Later this tradition declined.
So did Sparta.


What we have here is... failure- to communicate.

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

Murphy was an optimist.

Never share a foxhole with anyone braver than you are.


“Somebody has to speak for these people. Y'all got on this boat for different reasons, but y'all come to the same place. So now I'm asking more of you than I have before. Maybe all. Sure as I know anything, I know this—they will try again. Maybe on another world, maybe on this very ground swept clean. A year from now, ten? They'll swing back to the belief that they can make people...better. And I do not hold to that. So no more runnin'. I aim to misbehave.” Mal Reynolds Serenity/Firefly

"If the enemy is in range, so are you."
- Infantry Journal

"When the pin is pulled, Mr. Grenade is not our friend."
- U.S. Marine Corps

"Bravery is being the only one who knows you're afraid."
- David Hackworth

"If your attack is going too well, you’re walking into an ambush."
- Infantry Journal


If you've got one foot in yesterday, and the other in tomorrow, than you're pissing on today.

"If you're in a fair fight, your tactics suck",

or words to that effect. From a USMC text I think?

"Sometimes I pretend to be normal, but it's boring and I go back to being me."
"You might as well be yourself, people won’t like you anyway."

There are old pilots, and there are bold pilots................But there are no old, bold pilots.

“We sleep safely at night because rough men stand ready to visit violence on those who would harm us.”
