13 funniest military memes for the week of Feb. 17

The week is over, but the memes are neverending. Check out 13 of our favorite military memes of the week below:


1. This woobie is my woobie, and we have seen unspeakable things together (via Pop smoke).

Just take the statement of charges, dude. It's worth it.

2. "Build a wall over the tunnel!"

(via Military World)

Yeah, that doesn't stop Marines.

3. The flight line plays by its own rules. Like criminal gangs do (via Air Force Memes & Humor).

Also, if you don't get this reference, go rent "Chinatown."

4. Admit it, when you're in contact, you would rather those Chair Force fellows were in the chairs than in the gym (via Military Memes).

Course, they could go practice some ruck marching when they're off duty.

5. Dream away, fellows. Dream away (via Pop smoke).

Take a look at the age of that baby. You left her newly pregnant when you deployed and thought you would come back to her full of energy?

6. First sergeants were trying to save your life, Bubba (via Team Non-Rec).

Also would have helped if you kept your dang feet dry, like L-T told you to.

7. Oh yeah, sir? Those were your accomplishments?

(via Shit my LPO says)

Guess I'll just go over here and keep typing your reports for you.

8. Just give it some liberty, man. Those claws look sharp (via Pop smoke).

Maybe throw in some donut holes for free.

9. D-mnit, Carl. You never learned to secure your weapon? (via Military World)

Guess who's going swimming?

10. When you find out where Jodie goes after the housing area:

(via The Salty Soldier)

"What've you got coming in? A-10s? F-15s? 16s? Apaches? Cruise missiles?" "Yes."

11. Turns me on (via NavyMemes.com).

Haze grey and underway.

12. Ummmm ... I'm fine, bro. Keep your motivation to yourself (via The Salty Soldier).

And if that cadence caller could shut up, too, that'd be great.

13. You can tell the safety NCO is phoning it in when:

(via Coast Guard Memes)

Maybe keep some water bottles handy for the foreseeable future.

Humor

These old Navy training videos on how to flirt are hilariously bad

The National Archives hosts countless educational films that have come from the military throughout the ages. If you want to learn about declassified nuclear testing, they've got it. If you want to learn how to properly resist communist propaganda, they've got that, too. If you want to learn the 1960's way of wooing women, you better believe the U.S. Military has wasted money on making those videos, too.

Now, all you have to do is deal with the sleep deprivation and crummy weather.

10 military spouses you should unfriend on Facebook immediately

Often, there comes a point when people decide to give their Facebook friends list an overhaul.

They completely change their social landscape online by avoiding accepting friend requests from certain types of people, and they give their current friends list a good, hard scrub.

Everyone has their reasons. Maybe they're doing it for security purposes, or because a handful of people's posts drive them crazy or they want to keep a more professional profile. Military spouses in particular might do so because they want to focus on positive, stress-free relationships – that is, the ones that bring wine, wear sweat pants, and check judgment at the door.
