  1. Military Truisms
    • Aim towards the Enemy --instruction printed on US rocket launcher.
    • Cluster bombing is very, very accurate. The bombs always hit the ground.
    • Whoever said the pen is mightier than the sword obviously never encountered automatic weapons.
    • Don't ever be the first, don't ever be the last, and don't ever volunteer to do anything.
    • If your attack is going too well, you are walking into an ambush.
    • If you find yourself in a fair fight, you didn't plan your mission properly.
    • Don't draw fire; it irritates the people around you.
    • No combat ready unit has ever passed inspection.
    • Any ship can be a minesweeper . . . . once.
    • If the enemy is in range, so are you.
    • Tracers work both ways.
    • Friendly fire isn't.
    • Five second fuses only last three seconds.
    • Never share a foxhole with anyone braver than you are.
    • The problem with taking the easy way out is that the enemy has already mined it.
    • Incoming fire has the right of way.
    • Clothing sores only two sizes: too large and too small.
    • If you can see the enemy, he can see you.
    • And never tell your Boss you have nothing to do.
