    Rules of engagement:

    Marine Corps Rules
    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
    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.

    11. Always win. Their is no unfair fight.
    12. If you are not shooting, you should be communicating your intention

    One for the marines. Anything worth shooting is NOT worth shooting twice, one of the Marines Corps sayings being "One Shot, One Kill."

    For the air force, add one - Fly in, drop bombs, save dumb army puke's asses.

    For the navy, add - Fly in, bomb stuff, save dumb jarhead's asses, then helo them out.
  4. I'll print this out for my "wanting to join the forces" son....... I'm not qualified to comment!
  5. The Navy softens up the beach.......

    The Marines take the beach...........

    The Army holds the beach.........

    Then the Airforce comes and builds a club on the beach............... :D

    Thats why I joined the Air Force! But my time in was before HBO. Of course we DO come in handy when its time to call in the air strikes. 8)
  8. Hey, letting the officers do the fighting makes it nice. At least we are always sure that there is an Airman on the ground pumping gas to the newbie that just took the poor bastards place.... :D

  9. Now THAT is an interesting take on the situation! Very smart on your part.
