Author: A Murphy's Military Law

The enemy diversion you are ignoring is the main attack.

Never forget that your weapon was made by the lowest bidder.

All other things being equal, the side with the simplest uniforms wins.

Incoming fire has the right-of-way.

Make it too tough for the enemy to get in and you can't get out.

The more you sweat in peace, the less you bleed in war.

Bravery is being the only one who knows you're afraid.

If only one solution can be found for a field problem, then it is usually a stupid solution.

It isn't necessary to be an idiot to be a senior officer, but it sure helps.

Exceptions prove the rule, and destroy the battle plan.

If you are short of everything except enemy, you are in combat.

The one item you need is always in short supply.

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

No combat-ready unit has ever passed inspection.

If you find yourself in front of your platoon they know something you don't.

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.

There is no such place as a convenient foxhole.

When in doubt, empty the magazine.

Surprise is an event that takes place only in the mind of a commander.

Tracers work BOTH ways.

Mines are equal opportunity weapons.
