This is now being read at the 30th AG at Fort Benning by one of the Drill Sargeants, except with some added F-bombs for effect.

The owner has removed the sweatshirt.

I just wish people would quote the source.

Whom ever posted it at SFAS should have posted NousDefionsDoc or ProfessionalSoldiers.com as the author.

If someone is just using it, say a third party, and not the website owners there's not much we can do.....

Where'd you see it?

I don't mind people using things, just ask.

update...

Hey NDD and others,

I've been meaning to add to this for awhile just to let you know how ubiquitous the quote has gotten. I'm currently at the Infantry Officer Basic Course down at Benning and its all over the place.

First, I saw it posted on the wall in the "LT's Transition Office." This is bascially who we belong to whenever we are between courses or waiting to PCS from Benning or whatever the case may be. There is a QP that works in the office. Its possible that instance came from him.

Yesterday, during our MI intro brief the MAJ talking to us used it at the end of his presentation--he wore an SF combat patch, maybe that's where he picked it up.

Then, it came right back up today on the front end of a presentation on Guerrilla Warfare and Counter Insurgency given by a civilian that works at the Infantry museum. His was the only one that attributed the quote to anyone. It said "as stated by a SFQC instructor," or something to that effect.

I just thought I'd let you know where I had seen it lately. Honestly, I kinda like seeing it each time. Its rather cool knowing I at least know the online moniker of its creator. Plus its just damn motivating. Maybe I'll get it tattooed on my forearm before Ranger school....

Use of the Quote

I was wondering would NDD and the site mind if I used the quote for SFSC? It is the best words that would make some of our students stop their whining. It would be done in great taste and credit given to NDD and PS.com.

You have full permission to use the quote as you wish, just quote the source and you're good to go.

NDD - Do you mind if we use your actual name?

Dragbag is right we need to get the whine out of the course with some of the younger ones, but that includes a few of the older as well.
