Useful Military Warnings-------------------------

"Aim towards the Enemy." - Instruction printed on U.S. Rocket Launcher

"When the pin is pulled, Mr. Grenade is not our friend." - U.S. Army

"Cluster bombing from B-52s is very, very accurate. The bombs are
guaranteed
to always hit the ground." - U.S.A.F. Ammo Troop

"If the enemy is in range, so are you." - Infantry Journal

"A slipping gear could let your M203 grenade launcher fire when you least
expect it. That would make you quite unpopular in what's left of your
unit."
- Army's magazine of preventive maintenance

"It is generally inadvisable to eject directly over the area you just
bombed." - U.S. Air Force Manual

Some very good advice!
Another one I heard was to always remember that your weapon was built by the lowest bidder.
