I paid another visit to CHERRIESWRITER – VIETNAM WAR WEBSITE, and came across this gem of a post called, I Jest You Not! I actually remember many of these military sayings. A lot of them are hilarious, and they all get the intended point across. I listed a few of my favorites here. To view the post and the entire list, click here!
Military Wisdom: Sayings and terms to reflect on.
Recoilless rifles – aren’t.
If it’s stupid but it works, it isn’t stupid.
If at first, you don’t succeed, call in an airstrike.
Never forget your weapon was made by the lowest bidder.
The Old Ranger’s Addendum: Or else they’re trying to suck you into a serious ambush!
Tracers work both ways.
The one item you need is always in short supply.
Interchangeable parts aren’t.
Teamwork is essential; it gives the enemy other people to shoot at.
Never draw fire; it irritates everyone around you.
Incoming fire has the right of way.
If the enemy is within range, so are you.
The least questioned assumptions are often the most questionable.Stephen R. Covet
