Keeping Calm On The Battlefield

 
 
It's Monday, you need some humour.
 
I find this funny in part because it captures a moment in the Wilderness where Grant basically said the same thing to his staff, but also because it comes from one of my favourite military bloggers, the Angry Staff Officer.  I've featured his Star Wars based humour here before.
 
You can find ASO's unofficial life of US Grant here, and here is his take on famous military quotations rephrased for contemporary army life.  Hilarious.

Cheers,
