13 funniest military memes for the week of March 17

Funny military memes are like little morale pellets to keep everyone going throughout the year. And if your week was anything like ours, you could probably use some quick morale.


So here are 13 funny military memes to make your barracks and field exercises survivable for another week:

1. That fire team is definitely going to have some AAR notes (via The Salty Soldier).

"Uh, yeah. I've got some improves. Everyone take a knee. This'll take time."

2. Don't make fun of your Uber driver if he's the only one in town (via Sh-t my LPO says).

"Please?"

3. Fort Drum is like Narnia under the White Witch. Always winter, never Christmas (via Why I'm Not Re-enlisting).

"You guys are having a beach party? Good for you. We're going to go freeze again."

ALSO SEE: That time pirates mistook a Navy warship for a target >

4. "I just want to address the speeding off base that's been happening the last few weeks."

(via The Salty Soldier)

"Dude, we're speeding off base because you keep dragging out these briefs."

5. Marines really are the sum of their stereotypes (via Decelerate Your Life).

It's awkward when you're standing in a Hobby Lobby with them, pretty great when you're on the beach.

6. Yeah, it's basically balmy out here, chief (via Coast Guard Memes).

I'm gonna go cool off with a .50-cal popsicle.

7. When the recruiting ads and the service reality collide (via Why I'm Not Re-enlisting).

"Remember when we though we'd all high-five F-22s and do awesome stuff for America?"

8. Seaman Corgi is going to have a bad, bad day (via Sh-t my LPO says).

Maybe should've skipped a couple of those shots last night, little guy.

9. Why have scouts go ahead of the vehicle if you're not going to listen to their reports?

(via Pop smoke)

10. This is me talking to my younger self (via Air Force amn/nco/snco).

Could really use a deployment right about now. Are the Kurds still looking for volunteers?

11. "Let me just say, I wasn't at that bar. I wasn't with those guys. And I didn't do any of those things."

(via Sh-t my LPO says)

"You have photos? Well, crap."

12. Marines double-tap and double-wrap (via Pop smoke).

Depending on what base this is, that Marine may need to go to MOPP 4.

13. Get Out!

(via Why I'm Not Re-enlisting)

This is the real #GETOUT challenge.

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.

7 things grunts think about on watch in fighting holes

If nothing else has made you question your choice to join the infantry before, digging a fighting hole definitely will. It's always miserable, it's extremely time consuming, and there's always a giant rock waiting for you once you're halfway down. But, once you get that hole dug, it's smooth sailing. Now, all you have to do is deal with the sleep deprivation and crummy weather.

That time US troops found 200 tons of stolen Nazi gold

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.
