The 13 funniest military memes of the week

We found 13 hilarious military memes from around the internet and collected them for you. It's kind of what we do on Fridays.


1. Being able to just pick it up and shoot is a great feeling (via Military Memes).

Some things needed the bipod more than others.

2. Sure, sure, sure. Clean, clean, clean (via Devil Dog Nation).

You know how famous the barracks are for being clean, right sir?

SEE ALSO: A Navy carrier just broke the record for dropping bombs on ISIS >

3. Best part is, Plan C is an M4 and Plan D is an M9 (via Devil Dog Nation).

Plan E is a KA-BAR so you're screwed even then.

4. Yup, sorry man. Mandatory training across the force (via Air Force Nation).

Otherwise, how will people know it's important to wear a PT belt?

5. This is what the senior NCOs imagined when they heard the new armor would be made of plastic:

(via Sh-t my LPO says)

Should probably find some camouflage tape for that.

6. The Marines might be coming out ahead in this one:

(via Pop Smoke)

Sucks that it's Arby's, but it's still five bucks more than anyone else is getting.

7. When we say everything stops for colors, we mean everything (via Coast Guard Memes).

Now, fold the flag properly. The gloves are no excuse.

8. Seriously, Carl. We're all hoping (via Military Memes).

Just kidding. We'd be heartbroken. Maybe.

9. These boots are going to be about 20 volts shinier than they used to be (via Sh-t my LPO says).

Nice coffee mug, by the way.

10. BRRRRRT!

Also, whatever tries to kill my grunts, whatever wears the wrong flag, etc. The list is pretty long.

11. The Coast Guard knows what brings all the recruits to the station (via Coast Guard Memes).

Remember high schoolers, the services are carefully selecting what parts of the military they show you.

12. Don't remember going over the procedures for this in sustained airborne training:

(via Military Nations)

But congrats to the happy couple!

13. Do the Marines consider properly spelled words to be classified information?

(via Military Memes)

This explains so much.

This is how American pilots used drop tanks as bombs during WWII

If you pay attention, you might sometimes see long, cigar-shaped pods firmly attached to the undersides of classic fighter and attack aircraft, sometimes with unit markings on them.

Known as "drop tanks," these simple devices extend the range of the aircraft they're hooked up to by carrying extra usable fuel. Back during World War II, however, attack pilots found a secondary use for drop tanks as improvised bombs, used to bombard enemy ground positions.
