    Keep in mind that all of your equipment was made by the lowest bidder.




    Anything that you do can get you killed, including doing nothing!



    Act unimportant, maybe the enemy is low on ammo.



    Never share a foxhole with anyone braver than you.



    Don't let anyone dumber than you, tell you what to do.
