The 13 funniest military memes for the week of Jun. 3

The hot weather is here so remember to hydrate, hydrate, hydrate (unless you're in the southern hemisphere and then remember to wear thick socks and change them every morning). For both hemispheres, remember to quickly treat any injuries with Motrin.


For now, grab some shade (or a heater) and check this week's 13 funniest military memes:

1. Every time troops get a briefing:

(via The Salty Soldier)

"It's just that my morale is so low and you're so boring, sergeant."

2. Video game violence and actual combat have different etiquette rules:

Also, everyone would "hack" real war if they could. Literally everyone.

"Sorry, I'll tell you again when your hearing returns. And your ears stop bleeding."

5. The Coast Guard does timed challenges?

"You have only 12 seconds to put on this sunscreen and you already wasted four!"

6. What are they going to do if they can't connect to Facebook?
