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