    Military Rules by Service

    Marine Corps Rules:

    1. Be courteous to everyone, friendly to no one.
    2. Decide to be aggressive enough, quickly enough.
    3. Have a plan.
    4. Have a back-up plan, because the first one probably won't work.
    5. Be polite. Be professional. But, have a plan to kill everyone you meet.
    6. Do not attend a gunfight with a handgun whose caliber does not start with a '4.'

    7. Anything worth shooting is worth shooting twice. Ammo is cheap. Life is expensive.
    8. Move away from your attacker. Distance is your friend. (Lateral & diagonal preferred.)

    9. Use cover and concealment as much as possible.
    10. Flank your adversary when possible. Protect yours.
    11. Always cheat; always win. The only unfair fight is the one you lose.
    12. In ten years nobody will remember the details of caliber, stance, or
    tactics. They will only remember who lived.
    13. If you are not shooting, you should be communicating your intention to shoot.


    Navy SEALS Rules:
    1. Look very cool in sunglasses.
    2. Kill every living thing within view.
    3. Adjust speedo.
    4. Check hair in mirror.


    US Army Rangers Rules:
    1. Walk 50 miles wearing 75 pound rucksack while starving.
    2. Locate individuals requiring killing.
    3. Request permission via radio from 'Higher' to perform killing.
    4. Curse bitterly when mission is aborted..
    5. Walk out 50 miles wearing a 75 pound rucksack while starving.

    US Army Rules:
    1. Curse bitterly when receiving operational order.
    2. Make sure there is extra ammo and extra coffee.
    3. Curse bitterly.
    4. Curse bitterly.
    5. Do not listen to 2nd LTs; it can get you killed.
    6. Curse bitterly.


    US Air Force Rules:
    1. Have a cocktail.
    2. Adjust temperature on air-conditioner.
    3. See what's on HBO.
    4. Ask 'What is a firefight?'
    5. Request more funding from Congress with a 'killer' Power Point presentation.
    6. Wine & dine key Congressmen, invite DOD & defense industry executives.
    7. Receive funding, set up new command and assemble assets.
    8. Declare the assets 'strategic' and never deploy them operationally.
    9. Hurry to make 13:45 tee-time.
    10. Make sure the base is as far as possible from the conflict but close enough to have tax exemption.

    US Navy Rules:
    1. Go to Sea.
    2. Drink Coffee.
    3. Deploy Marines.

    Shane a couple of things before you get jumped on by someone that is one (not me I am not), it is SEAL i.e. SEa, Air and Land. Just saying cause I know on some message boards they will jump your azz quick if you dont have it done right.

    While number one isnt totally correct since there are shore bound Navy personnel which I dont understand LOL, number 2 is close to correct but there are a lot of peeps out there that drink butt loads of Soda Pop and number 3 I would say yes thats laughable when they put the coffee down :smile2:

    Honestly Im not sure on that I would say that yes it correct since it stands for Basic Underwater Demolition (not sure what the S at the end stands for). I wasnt trying to pull your chain I know some people get irate about a lot of people say seal/Seal or whatever. Keep it up squid

    hey shane? did you know that a good majority of SEAL were at one time Marines? and that before a SEAL team can even enter an area that they send in a Marine reconnaissance team to gather the required info to relay back to the SEAL team and let them know what they are up against? i know how hard BUD's training is, i have watched what happens to those guys. i was stationed at coronado and we would pass them on our beach runs. it is quite strenous i will admit that, but a SEAL is taught how to kill and how to destroy things at BUD's, where-as a Marine is taught it from the first day of boot camp.
