MIGHTY CULTURE

The 13 funniest military memes for the week of August 31st

It looks like Hurricane Lane is finally done wrecking Hawaii, leaving in its wake record rainfall, widespread building damage, and places without power. Since Hawaii is home to many military installations from each branch, they won't have to look too hard to find bodies for their 10,000-man aid detail.

If you're stationed in Hawaii, you'll more than likely be used in the clean-up efforts — you know, just as soon as you finish sweeping all the crude that washed into the motor pool.

These memes probably can't soothe the pain of being the only person who's actually going to work while your buddies are making their third run to the gut truck and your NCOs are "supervising." But, hey, they can't hurt, either.


1. Shout-out to all the troops stationed in Hawaii with senior NCOs from Florida who said this hurricane was "nothing."

2. Phrasing is important — and maybe context clues.

3. Respect!

4. It's the most uncomfortable you'll ever be and yet you'll never sleep better. 

(Meme via Disgruntled Vets)

5. When your command says it's a Mandatory Fun Day, the emphasis is much more on the "mandatory" than the "fun."

(Meme via Sh*t My LPO Says)

6. When you have to pick up your Joe from the MP station because they got roaring drunk and tried fighting the robotic mouse at Chuck E. Cheese, you quickly lose whatever remaining hope you had for the unit. 

(Meme via Army as F*ck)

7. Every time someone misses the 50m target, they look around to see if anyone else saw. We all did — and we're judging you. 

(Meme via The Salty Soldier)

8. "Oh, what? No! That's awful! We have to go to her work and do something about that."

(Meme via Decelerate Your Life)

9. PLFs may be hell on your knees, but it does wonders for your back!

(Meme by Ranger Up)

10. It's a few moments of glory as you blow through a 200-round belt for thirty minutes cleaning of up the brass — but is it worth it? F*ck yes it is. 

(Meme via Valhalla Wear)

11. The greatest part of any military ball is flexing on the butterbars.

(Meme via Shammers United)

12. All the pay and respect of a specialist with the duties of an NCO. No one ever wants to be a corporal, you just end up as one.

And if you think you actually wanted to be a corporal, you're only lying to yourself — or you're secretly a robot.

(Meme via The Salty Soldier)

13. If we filled out the survey on toxic leadership in the unit, would any thing even come of it?
