Things to Remember During a War


1. The only things more accurate than enemy fire is friendly fire.
2. Try to look unimportant, they may be low on ammo.
3. Teamwork is essential. It gives them more targets to shoot at.
4. No inspection-ready unit ever passed combat.
5. No combat-ready unit ever passed inspection.
6. Remember: your aircraft was made by the lowest bidder.
7. Never draw fire, it will irritate the rest of your formation.
8. Never share a cockpit with someone braver than you.
9. You are not Tom Cruise.
10. SAMs and AAA have the right-of-way.
11. If you aren't sure, the SAMs are pointed at you.
12. If hit, landing near the people that just shot you down is not a good idea.
13. Close only counts in horseshoes, nukes and proximity-fused missiles.
14. Smart bombs have bad days too.
15. The best defense is to stay out of range.
16. If you are short on everything but enemy, you are in combat.

Thank you, to all our military for your service to our country!

Yea, there were margins!

Funny, you don't look like Tom Cruise, KS Bob! Maybe his father?

That Scientology stuff is really weird! How can people believe that stuff? But people think we are crazy for believing the Bible and in Jesus.

You should have seen me in the 80s (I was 30 something) when Top Gun was in the movies. :)

Hi, Jojo, I'm glad you stopped by. I've had margin problems in that the page didn't show them and you couldn't scroll down. So far today, with this posting, I've had them when I go to the post through the title, and not just my blog's title. I hope that is the problem, because the 'help' sure didn't 'help'!!!
