The 13 Funniest Military Memes of the Week: 9/16/15



We cover the military and we’re on the internet. Military memes are kind of a given.

1. Is it too much to ask? (via Terminal Lance)


“Come on, gunny. I’m a great Marine once you get to know me.” “No, you aren’t.”

2. Dear Disney, we will buy all the tickets to this movie.


Just make sure there’s a scene where an A-10 “Brrrrrtttts” all over an Imperial walker.

3. You are what you eat (Via Sh-t My LPO Says).


At least he’ll get a profile pic out of this.

4. Things you don’t want your future squad to see:  (via Military Memes)


Why is his battle buddy standing at almost-attention?

5. Civilians think you’ve learned 100 ways to kill a man … (via Marine Corps Memes)


… but we know you’ve learned 17 ways to police call a smoke pit.

6. No basic training instructor will appreciate the “irony” of you wearing another branch’s camo (via Coast Guard Memes).


Just wear a Tapout T-shirt like everyone else.

7. “You have three days to accept this challenge …”


“… or we’ll initiate the thermobaric challenge.”

8. Some paintings call for happy trees, some call for other embellishments (via Military Memes).


Bob Ross knows which paintings need what.

9. Don’t let Marines get bored. It rarely ends well (via Military Memes).


It’s entertaining, but it doesn’t end well.

10. From the 12th to the 14th, and the 28th to 31st (via Terminal Lance).


Every. Single. Month.

11. I mean, at least no one can tell him his ribbons are wrong after that (via Navy Memes).


“You think they’re 1/32″ too high? Well MCPON put ’em there, so they’re staying.”

 12. God may forgive you (via Sh-t My LPO Says).


But, the platoon sergeant is a bit harder to convince.

13. How the US Air Force calls a bluff.


USAF can do this all day, guys.

    I remember when we were finally brought to our Quonset huts with our sea bag issued gear. we had not slept for over two days if we had gotten a good send off by our friends, and I just put my sea bag on the ground, and there was this guy in a Smokie hat screaming at me and spitting in my face. The only thought that was in my mind was, “Why is this man screaming at me? If he wants me to do something, why doesn’t he just say so?”. About two days later, after a few hours sleep, I realized that that man was my DI, and I was supposed to be afraid of him. After that, boot camp was a breeze. I tried my hardest, and them went back and did it again if that was not enough. I think that they saw that in me. SEMPER FI

    As an Army fan of the A-10, I loved the “Brrrrrtttt” meme!

    I received a personal invitation from the President of the United States in 1968 to become a soldier. I was sent to Ft Bragg. Two advantages were had from this experience. 1) Due to a shortage of slots in Army Drill Sergeants School our 82nd Airborne Drill Sergeants were turned into D.I.s courtesy of Paris Island (never to think like Drill Sergeants again). 2) Similarly the, then recent, filming of “Green Berets” at Ft Bragg had left an indelible impression on the Training Brigade. Any screw up brought the instant retort “Who the hell do you think you are Private, John Wayne? After only a matter of hours it became obvious to many of us that the instant obedience required was conditioning to possibly save our miserable lives in the field, not brainwashing, as many civilians might believe. I have had many occasions to use “the voice” to straighten out subordinate and superior alike always with appropriate respect. From this experience we began to appreciate impossible people and similarly the heroics of close support. Those A-10 guys are almost on the ground with you. That all by itself, even in practice, is a challenge. That takes more than nerve.
