Man oh man, sometimes the brain takes a lunch break, and a true fail presents itself. Take for instance, this soldier who microwaved a can of Chef Boyardee (with the lid on), on an active military base. Naturally, the resulting mess created a nice eruption of chaos, given the environment.
Robert O'Neill's a former Navy Seal who participated in the raid on Osama bin Laden, and he claims he was the one who fired the bullets that actually killed him. On Thursday, O'Neill took to Twitter to rage on President Trump for giving marching orders to the Pentagon, to put on a show of strength in the streets of Washington.
These aren't your usual run-of-the-mill military memes. There's definitely significant shade-throwing that any army personnel will be tempted to chuckle at. So yeah, maybe don't show these to your superiors? Either way, we love these military memes and the chance it brings to show our appreciation for anyone who's served!
We've come quite a long way since Don't Ask Don't Tell.
President Obama announced his nomination for the next Secretary of the Army Sept. 18 and it's Eric Fanning, an openly gay man.
If confirmed, Fanning would take over for current Secretary John McHugh who will soon leave the post.
Fanning is currently serving as acting Army undersecretary, and previously worked as Air Force undersecretary and chief of staff to U.S. Defense Secretary Ash Carter. His nomination to the post must still be confirmed by the U.S. Senate.
"Eric brings many years of proven experience and exceptional leadership to this new role," Obama said in a statement. "I am confident he will help lead America's soldiers with distinction."
Carter called Fanning's nomination "an excellent choice" by Obama and said he hoped for a quick Senate confirmation.
A quick confirmation might not be in store if history is any indication. President Obama has had more nominations blocked by Senate filibuster threat than any other president.
In a gross display of injustice, enlisted rape victims have gone public in stating that the military branded them "crazy" and had them discharged. With a lawsuit pending and an upcoming report on CNN, this publicity will hopefully lead to a policy change or a public firing of military officials.
