Author: A Murphy's Military Law

If you take more than your fair share of objectives, you will have more than your fair share to take.

Never share a foxhole with anyone braver than you.

Incoming fire has the right-of-way.

There is no such place as a convenient foxhole.

Exceptions prove the rule, and destroy the battle plan.

The quartermaster has only two sizes, too large and too small.

No one ever carries too much ammo.

The enemy never monitors your radio frequency until you broadcast on an unsecured channel.

Those who beat their swords into plowshares will plow for those who don't.

If the enemy is in range, so are you!

Smart bombs have bad days too.

Whoever said the pen is mightier than the sword obviously never encountered automatic weapons!

As soon as you are served hot chow in the field, it rains

If enough data is collected, a board of inquiry can prove anything.

Whenever you have plenty of ammo, you never miss; whenever you are low on ammo, you can't hit the broad side of a barn.

The complexity of a weapon is inversely proportional to the IQ of the weapon's operator.

Don’t look conspicuous – in the combat, it draws fire; out of the combat zone, it draws sergeants.

A Purple Heart just proves that were you smart enough to think of a plan, stupid enough to try it, and lucky enough to survive.

The only thing more accurate than incoming enemy fire is incoming friendly fire.

The Cavalry doesn’t always come to the rescue.

Fortify your front; you’ll get your rear shot up.
