The quartermaster has only two sizes, too large and too small.
Don’t be conspicuous.  In the combat zone, it draws fire.  Out of the combat zone, it draws sergeants.
No battle plan ever survives contact with the enemy.
The further you are in advance of your own front lines, the more likely your artillery will shoot short.
Friendly fire ain’t.
The only thing more accurate than incoming enemy fire is incoming friendly fire.
If your advance is going well, you are walking into an ambush.
The problem with taking the easy way out is the enemy has already mined it .
The buddy system is essential to your survival;  it gives the enemy somebody else to shoot at.
Incoming fire has the right of way.
The only time your suppressive fire works is when it is used on the enemy’s abandoned positions.
