military rules,by service

Marine Corps Rules:
1. Be courteous to everyone, friendly to no one.
2. Decide to be aggressive enough, quickly enough.
3. Have a plan.
4. Have a back-up plan, because the first one probably won't work.
5. Be polite. Be professional. But, have a plan to kill everyone you meet ­ even your friends…
6. Do not attend a gunfight with a handgun whose caliber does not start with a "4."
7. Anything worth shooting is worth shooting twice. Ammo is cheap. Life is expensive.
8. Move away from your attacker. Distance is your friend. (Lateral & diagonal preferred.)
9. Use cover or concealment as much as possible.
10. Flank your adversary when possible. Protect yours.
11. Always cheat; always win. The only unfair fight is the one you lose.
12. In ten years nobody will remember the details of caliber, stance, or tactics. They will only remember who lived.
13. If you are not shooting, you should be communicating your intention to shoot.

Navy SEAL's Rules:
1. Look very cool in sunglasses.
2. Kill every living thing within view.
3. Adjust speedo.
4. Check hair in mirror.

US Army Rangers Rules:
1. Walk in 50 miles wearing 75 pound rucksack while starving.
2. Locate individuals requiring killing.
3. Request permission via radio from "Higher" to perform killing.
4. Curse bitterly when mission is aborted.
5. Walk out 50 miles wearing a 75 pound rucksack while starving.

US Army Rules:
1. Curse bitterly when receiving operational order.
2. Make sure there is extra ammo and extra coffee.
3. Curse bitterly.
4. Curse bitterly.
5. Do not listen to 2nd LT's; it can get you killed.
6. Curse bitterly.

US Air Force Rules:
1. Have a cocktail.
2. Adjust temperature on air-conditioner.
3. See what's on HBO.
4. Ask "what is a gunfight?"
5. Request more funding from Congress with a "killer" Power Point presentation.
6. Wine & dine 'key' Congressmen, invite DOD & defense industry executives.
7. Receive funding, set up new command and assemble assets.
8. Declare the assets "strategic" and never deploy them operationally.
9. Hurry to make 13:45 tee-time.
10. Make sure the base is as far as possible from the conflict but close enough to have tax exemption.

US Navy Rules:
1. Go to Sea.
2. Drink Coffee.
3. Deploy Marines

But the Navy spends a hell of a lot of time taking perfectly good paint off of a ship only to replace it with more of the same???

stand at attention. If it were not for MARDET (ship's company Marines) the Nevr Dull and Brasso companies would go out of business, not to mention Kiwi shoe Polish.
MARDET had the compartment next to ours aboard Ticonderoga, they did brig duty, were assigned fire fighting duties if that were ever to happen and they manned a 5" gun, did a good job on it too! Most of them were nice enough but their gunny was a certified sadistic asshole that planted other peoples clothes in guy's gear so they'd get "office hours". He took drunk Marines by the back of the head and smashed their faces into the table top.

Frisco. It was lunch time as we cleared the channel and got into the rough water near the Farallon Islands. I've never seen so much puke in one place in my natural life, almost slipped and fell trying to get to a table with my chow, puke sloshed across the floor like water. Stink was awful, lousy cooks were sick too I think.
After eating I counted about 50 food trays scattered on the deck where the guys dropped them and ran for a place to toss whatever they had in their guts.
They got off in Hawaii, bet that was they happiest day of their lives.
They were not ship's company Marines, they were just going for a boat ride :<)

I read that there was quite a bit of "misbehavior" (crime) among some of those people. I rented a room to one in the '80s, he told me about some of the shit that the criminals pulled off like ripping off welfare and every charity and agency that had money. They got rich off our backs and paid NO taxes and did no time in the joint.

back in 75 one of my first driving jobs was for a north american van lines agent. they put me on a run from the dover afb.. I loaded up stuff coming off them big ass jet cargo planes and took them up to ft. dix new jersey...i always wondered why they didnot just fly into maguire afb, that was right next door....????

I have reasons for the things I do, just don't expect them to be reasonable

inspections. Dover is a big time international traffic AFB. Not all AFBs have full time or even part time customs.
