A way to tag FAKE veterans...We have all seen them

I have a very fool-proof way to spot fake veterans. You know the type. Talk loud in bars. Talk about some technical aspects of guns, but may or may not have ever fired them. Talk, talk, talk,....but.....never served one day.

My question that gets a blank look every time:
WHAT IS YOUR SECOND GENERAL ORDER ???

OK, in the Navy, we had 11. I believe the Army has only three, but they are a mix of the ones the Navy had. Not sure of the Air Force or Marines, BUT, I am sure we all had to recite them from rote memory in boot camp. I am pretty sure EVERYONE had them drilled into them.

Even if you can't remember the exact words, or the number, you CAN say some of them, I will bet.

The fakers just stare blankly at me and the even stupider ones ask..."What is that?".

Please any other vets, post what you remember in this thread so we can all know and weed out the fakes.

What I remember from the Navy is;

1. To take charge of this post and all government property in view.
2. To walk my post in a military manner, always observing everything that takes place within sight or hearing.
3. To talk to no one except in the line of duty.
11. To quit my post only when properly relieved.
Number ?. To pass on all orders from posts more distant than my own.

That's all I remember, but it sure nails the SOB's that never served. They can study guns, planes, uniforms all day long, but unless they had to repeat them while doing pushups in the rain like we all had to, they are not fooling anyone.....BUSTED !!!

Thanks from Slice&Dice and TheShooter

Should apply to every branch of service out there. Good one. Can't wait for the, "What's a General Order?," question.

Are you kidding......that was 35+ years ago...I couldn't remember the exact dates I was in Basic Training. As far as Bar room Rangers...who cares...let them live out their world in the x box call of Booty...tute-e-fruitie....what ever they call that video $hit.
With the way the Nation is heading the past years I really don't want to be reminded I served this nation considering the human garbage that are now the 51% of my "fellow Americans". Can we say Moral decay, its beyond party lines...its a core shift in society.

I wish I could argue with you, howardhughes, I really wish I could, but I can't. You are so right about the moral decay.

I also understand how hard it might be to remember that far back, having to tear the paper cartridges off with your teeth and then pouring the powder down the barrel and all. (joking of course)

BTW...I personally consider North Carolina to be one of the very last good places on earth. Now if you could just make good BBQ like we do in Texas, and quit drowning it in vinegar, use beef not pig, and keep the cole slaw off the bun, it would be the BEST place in the world. (smiles)

1. To take charge of this post and all government property in view.

2. To walk my post in a military manner, keeping always on then alert and observing everything that takes place within sight or hearing.

3. To report all violations of orders I am instructed to enforce.

4. To repeat all calls from posts more distant from the guardhouse than my own.

5. To quit my post only when properly relieved.

6. To receive, obey, and pass on the sentry who relieves me, all orders from the commanding officer, officer of the day, and officers and noncommissioned officers of the guard only.

7. To talk to no one except in line of duty.

8. To give the alarm in case of fire or disorder.

9. To call the corporal of the guard in any case not covered by instructions.

10. To salute all officers and all colors and standards not cased.

11. To be especially watchful at night and, during the time for challenging, to challenge all persons on or near my post and to allow no one to pass without proper authority.

You could have asked me my general orders when I was still active and I might have given you something, but I might have not been in exact order. I'm finding most of my military experiance is a blur these days. I cannot remember what seems like a life time ago. Sometimes people ask specific questions and I do feel like crap when I cannot answer them. Isn't because I wasn't there, but I just cannot remember. So much of it I simply don't want to remember. There was bad times. What gets me is people I was with try to remind me of the good times and I don't remember those half the time either.

I remember them after I looked them up. It`s been a long time (1967).You can spot a fake in general conversation.

Now you've got me thinking....was I ever in the Navy???
My serial # was seven numbers..59935xx... and the only orders we had in Vietnam was to watch you're a$$. That was the P.O.D. every day.
General Orders...that was " Boot camp"....I think. But thanks for the memories.

I like the concept but, in my case, Great Lakes was in 1975. I'm hoping that what I remember would pass muster, because this one isn't in the Blue Jacket's Manual.

I will stand my post in a military manner and take no sh!t from the company commander.
