Great military movies impact audiences by entertaining the crap out of them. Then, inspired, the viewer's own creative sense of humor sparks and memes are born.
Memes are an excellent way to put images together to make hilarious jokes that only a select group of people understand.
So, check out 11 of the best military movie memes ever written (probably).
11. The military does have some interestingly lousy tattoo policies in place. Unfortunately, getting some "tatts" might have been a mistake, but it's never hurt anyone in battle... Right?

5. When a single frame in an Academy Award film gets it so wrong, but only we see it.
4. Oh, burn! He has a dirty mind — and we like that.
