The 13 funniest military memes for the week of August 9th

There's no other way to put it. This week was full of horrific events and terrible news.

Yet, in the midst of all the bad that happened this week, there were some rays of goodness. Because that's what memes are supposed to be about - making a joke and putting a smile on someone's face after a sh*tty day.


As the saying of the Army's short-lived resiliency training that my chaplain really awkwardly tried to make a thing goes: Let's hunt the good stuff.

There are many children still here today because of the quick-thinking PFC Glendon Oakley. An all-veteran A Cappella group called Voices of Service performed a breathtaking rendition of See You Again on America's Got Talent and made it to the live rounds. Across the country, many unclaimed veterans - deceased veterans without contactable next of kin - are having their brothers and sisters-in-arms attend their funerals.

The world's too full of fighting and bickering over mundane BS. I'll let someone else tell you that everything is on fire, but I say we just take a breather and remember that there is still some good in the world. Anyways, here are some memes.

1. Who says romance is dead?

13. You're thinking a system that rewards yes-men who're good at taking tests but sh*ts on the dedicated troops who literally break themselves for the unit can just change overnight? Best of luck with that but I may have a few pointers where to start...
