Before the Goddamned Marines get all of the credit." - General George S. Patton, Jr (in the end, General Patton, our Marines always are the ones who look good)

"In a man to man fight the winner is the one who puts an extra round in his magazine" -Field Marshal Erwin Rommel

"Which brings me to perception. Some of you may remember Commander General Conway's speech before we left Kuwait, he mentioned those who don't support us. To quote him he said: ‘Piss on them'." - Lieutenant Colonel Piers Hankinson, commander of the 2nd Royal Tank Regiment

"When you men get home and face an anti-war protester, look him in the eyes and shake his hand. Then, wink at his girlfriend, because she knows she's dating a flower." - Attributed to General Tommy Franks
