Found some funny stuff while looking for adequate quotes for my Jagdpanther/Ferdinand Guide and wanted to present those to you.

"In god we trust. All other we monitor" - U.S. Navy, Naval Intelligence

"You can talk about us, but you can't talk without us!" - Signal Corps

"We who have done so much with so little for so long can now do anything with nothing forever." - United States Coast Guard

"You yell, we shell!" - Fire Support Element, 40th ID (M)

"Sighted sub, glub, glub!" - U.S. Navy Armed Guard (Navy Gunners on WW2 merchant ships)

"If it doesn't work, paint it!" - Merchant Naval Engineers

"Nobody goes until we pass them the hose!" - United States Air Force Fuel Troops

"Without POL, all pilots are pedestrians!" - United States Air Force Fuel Troops

"Without weapons, it's just another airline!" - USAF Weapon Troops

"Drive it like you stole it!" - Several Transport Units

Got the quotes from this site - http://www.military-...ny%20mottos.htm

"War is a nightmare! But the sound is awesome - and we are the DJs!" - Don't know if it's unit specific. I heard (and said) it very often while serving in a rocket artillery unit of the German Bundeswehr

That's a good one, too. I tried to find some fo german units, but for some reason nothing showed. Maybe I can provide a few more in a few weeks (hurray, boot camp).
