Weekend Military Funnies

War is not all guns and death. Sadly, there is a lot of that, but in their down time, soldiers (sailors, airmen and marines) don't have a whole lot to do. To be fair, the military does try to give them access to TV, movies, gyms, internet and phone service (where possible), but there are still a lot of hours to fill. Mr. HH says he gets so bored in the sandbox he's afraid he'll go mad. To combat (pun totally intended) boredom, soldiers are often incredibly creative and occasionally very, very silly. Have you seen the Lady Gaga Afghanistan Remake? It's gone viral very quickly. If you haven't, please enjoy:

This one came out a few years ago, but is one of my all time favorites.

The Air Force likes to sing too:

Let's not leave out the Navy. Those deployments can be looooong (my dad can attest to this).

Aparently the Marines like Lady Gaga too:

Can you believe what they get up to?  Did you pay attention to their surroundings?  While these videos my be funny, it also gives us a glimpse of how they live.  Think you could live like that?  Think you could have such a sense of humor?

I love these those def made my day thanks for blogging them. Also, i could never imagine living in conditions like that and still have a positive attitude. Much respect for the military.

Tooo funny!!! I think having a sense of humor is how they survive those conditions. I was in a wedding this past weekend and the groom and all the groomsmen were in the military... 3 Marines, one Army, and one civilian police officer, and they totally had that sense of humor. They talked the bride into walking back up the aisle to Lady G. It was a really fun weekend.

I think their sense of humor is how they keep from going insane. I am so proud of our military, and their wives/girlfriends/moms too. A guy at our church had considered going into the military, he looks like he is cut out to be a marine (aka super cute, tall and RIPPED) but due to an injury he can't.
