I used to tell young guys (I was 25 at the time) to "keep your spirits up and your ass down".

Heard it from an Army Master Sergeant high school ROTC instructor. 

After college I was commissioned and he attended the ceremonies....as a bird Colonel.  He had taken a voluntary RIF to stay past 30 years and teach us poor dumb kids how to stay alive and retired at his highest held rank. 

A lot of what he and another old timer taught us wasn't on the official curriculum.

Thanks, Sgt. Martin and Sgt. Woolems, wherever you are.
People like me are the reason people like you have the right to bitch about people like me.

When I was a FTO (Field Training Officer):  Told young recruits the analogy of the bulls:  Two bulls are up on a hill, a young bull and an old bull.  Looking down at the heard of cows below, the young bull says "lets RUN down there and grab us one."  The old bull says, "No, why don't we WALK down, and get them all!"

Had a lowlife' make some threats once after bustin' him for possession of illegal smoking material. One of them 'teetered' on the fact that he had access to firearms. I asked him if he was threatening me, he just sat there with the same stupid look he had 24/7. I advised him, "You'd better make your first shot count because you won't get another!" Must have taken it into account, heard some time later he told some of his compatriots that I wasn't anyone to mess with.  ;D ;D ;D ;D

When making a traffic stop, always roll your window down 1/3 of the way. Then when you lock yourself outta your car, you can get back in without looking like a dipshit.

#2 If you think you gotta go to the bathroom, Go right then . If you wait, you will be directing traffic at the next call, at a busy intersection, while attempting to hold it.
