Excerpt No. 1, from the chapter, "Murphy's Laws of Combat for Infantry"
     . . . These time-tested laws of combat never change, so warriors of today can learn from fatal mistakes made by warriors of the past.  In the beginning, combatants used their fists and teeth.  Later they graduated to clubs and big rocks.  Pretty soon a sharpened stick evolved into a spear.  Then a sharpened rock, strapped onto a club, became a sophisticated war-ax.  Hi-tech!  Swords and shields followed.  The longbow and arrows came next, and later the crossbow became an even more lethal and accurate killing machine.  Then the Chinese stumbled across gunpowder, and the rest is history.
     Today the modern warrior charges into battle armed with a dizzying array of guns, mines, rockets, missiles, and electronic smart weapons. He can race overland from one battlefield to the next, protected inside his lethal armored chariot.  At his beck and call are flying machines of incredible speed that can rain aerial death and destruction down upon the bad guys . . . . 
 
Excerpt No. 2, from the chapter, "Murphy's Laws of Combat for Infantry"
          -- Murphy's 12 Rules for Firefights --
1.  Never be the idiot who shows up armed only with a knife.
2.  Bring an automatic weapon.  Better yet, bring two.
3.  Bring all your friends, with all their automatic weapons.
4.  Bring lots and lots of ammo -- it's cheap life insurance.
5.  If one of your weapons is a handgun, make sure its caliber begins with the numeral "4" or greater.
6.  Make sure your weapons will fire every time.  If angel-pee causes your weapons to jam, you'll be terminally SOL.
7.  Have a good plan.  Have a good back-up plan.
8.  Smoke and loud noise don't kill.  Only hits count.
9.  The faster you shoot the bad guys, the less shot you will get . . . .
 
Excerpt No. 3, from the chapter, "Murphy's Laws of Combat for Aviation"
-- When in doubt, climb!  No pilot has ever collided with the sky.
-- Remember, you can only tie the record for flying low.
-- If you absolutely must fly low, don't fly slow.
-- Those who hoot with the owls by night must not try to soar with the eagles by day.
-- Airspeed, Altitude, Brains.  You need at least two at all time.
-- Never forget the six most useless things in Military Aviation:
      1.  The approach plates you forgot to bring.
      2.  The fuel you've already burned.
      3.  The airspeed you had.
      4.  The altitude above you.
      5.  The runway behind you.
      6.  A tenth of a second ago . . . .
 
Excerpt No. 4, from the chapter, "Murphy's Laws of Lust, Sex, and Seduction"
-- A bachelor looks before he leaps -- and then doesn't leap.
-- A groom is a man with his last chance for happiness behind him.
-- Unfortunately, marriage certificates don't have expiration dates.
-- Sooner or later, every married man will believe in Hell -- on Earth.
-- A warrior may be a fool and not know it -- unless he's married.
-- After a warrior marries Miss Right, he learns that her first name is Always.
-- Scientists have discovered a food that decreases a woman's sex drive by 93 percent -- it's called "Wedding Cake."
-- Before his liver fails, a warrior can never drink enough of his mother-in-law's booze to get even . . . .
 
Excerpt No. 5, from the serious Legacy Chapter, "Codes to Keep"
    . . . Combatants lived and died in the squalor of trenches filled with knee-deep mud, urine, and feces, and they choked on stench from decaying corpses.  A non-stop cannonade ripped apart human bodies, and shrieks of wounded men, writhing in filth and screaming for their mothers, drove some soldiers insane.  Rats scurried about, feeding on the dead and on flesh of living men too weak to defend themselves.  The rats carried lice, which in turn carried trench fever.  Unspeakable horror, misery, exhaustion, and terror became the daily norm.  Men standing face-to-face had to scream at each other to be heard over the unending cacophony of exploding artillery shells . . . .
 
Excerpt No. 6, from the serious Legacy Chapter, "That Flag Stands for Freedom"
    (from sentencing of the "shoe-bomber", Richard Reid, in 2003) . . . We are not afraid of you or any of your terrorist co-conspirators, Mr. Reid.  We are Americans, and we have been through the fire before.
     . . . Look around this courtroom.  Mark it well.  The world is not going to long remember what you or I say here.  But, see that flag, Mr. Reid?  That's the flag of the United States of America.  That flag will fly there long after you are forgotten.  That flag stands for freedom!  And, it always will!
