  • Leadership is more than just a position you hold.

  • Respect goes both ways.

  • Rank has no bearing on a person's abilities, nor is it a reasonable indication of their competence.

  • Regardless of what we look like on the outside: we all bleed the same colour -- our guts look the same, too.

  • If you want to find the easiest way to do something, find the laziest person to do it.

  • You can delegate authority, but you can't delegate responsibility.

  • Bad driving is better than good walking.

  • Pain is your friend -- it lets you know you're still alive.

  • Never stand when you can sit.

  • Never sit when you can lie down.

  • Never volunteer for anything -- chances are you'll get picked anyway.

  • Teamwork is essential -- it gets the job done and it gives the enemy somebody else to shoot at.

  • Social interaction is a lot easier when everyone is wearing a name tag.

  • You can take a man out of the Army but you can't take the Army out of a man.

  • Not paying attention can get you killed.
