13 Hilarious suggestions for the US Navy's new slogan
The Navy has dumped its unpopular recruiting slogan and we came up with some funnier replacements the service definitely won’t use.
Gone is the “Global force for good,” a five-year-old slogan that hasn’t been popular with many sailors, admirals, or the public at large, reported the Navy Times.
To fill the void, The Times created a contest allowing people to submit their slogans. While people submitting to the contest are expected to offer serious entries, the WATM team thought up some lighthearted versions, along with a little help from this Reddit thread and from the S–t My LPO Says Facebook page.
