The 13 funniest military memes of the week

You made it through another week, but no one is giving you medals and ribbons for that. You'll have to settle for these memes instead.


1. Seriously, car dealers may be the most powerful entities in the military community(via Devil Dog Nation).

They get you with those pay allotments.

2. Help people get to heaven. Make martyrs.

Air Force does charitable service in the community, the Army does it on the battlefield.

3. Airmen are immune to your mockery (via Air Force Nation).

Of course, the A-10 is the one Air Force asset that never gets made fun of.

4. Navy likes to play Army for PT (via Sh-t My LPO Says).

Maybe they're practicing to be combat engineers?

5. It'll probably work, especially against the Navy.

Hopefully these don't get deployed alongside beautiful women. America would fall immediately.

6. When you try to advance in life ...

(via Military Memes)

... and end up right back where you started.

7. Be careful, they hunt in packs.

The lance corporal underground can protect you.

8. There's a reason pilots have checklists.

Pretty sure that's not the third step. Probably more like step 1.

9. Doesn't have a concealed carry permit (via Marine Corps Memes).

Better not put his hands in his pockets.

10. Remember that they're games and not simulators (via Sh-t My LPO Says).

The "tactics" don't translate to the real world.

11. Pretty sure there's a "D-mnit Carl!" coming.

If he loses any, first sergeant's gonna be pissed.

 12. When Sauron is sent for KP duty (via Sh-t My LPO Says).

Can't be certain, but it looks like you might have overcooked it.

13. Target identification is hard.

But hey, knowing is half the battle. Unfortunately, blowing up is the other half.

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.

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.
