Plain-Language Signs at 3/7

this hilarious post at erik peterson's team med-fah, on a sign he saw in ramadi at the command post of 3rd Battalion 7th Marines--

"Quit using your freaking boots..."

immediately reminded of other signs *i* had seen at 3/7's CP out in al-qaim, in may or june of '04:


and then there was this priceless sign (it's funnier if you're a VMI grad, and yes it was put up by a VMI grad)...


looks to me like the only change in 3/7 is that they've cleaned up their language!

lol funny. Profanity doesn't solve the problem at all. In fact it acutally will increase the problem
