Holiday Safety Briefing

Updated: November 27, 2013

The long holiday weekend starts tonight after final formation and there will undoubtedly be a safety briefing prior to dismissal.  I have had the pleasure of hearing some dandy safety briefings during my time.   So what are your favorite quotes?  Let’s create our own safety briefing here.  Leave a comment below and I will throw a couple of shirts out to the funniest, most creative ones posted (make sure you leave a good email address, it won’t be shown publicly).

Have a great Thanksgiving  folks, be safe and please take a moment to remember those who have fallen.   Please take a moment to remember the typhoon stricken people of the Philippines and tornado ravaged Illinois this weekend and also the brave members of Team Rubicon who are continuing their service to this great country.  If you would like to donate to Team Rubicon and the mission in Washington, IL you can click here.

    CPT. Ward – “When you go out to the bars this weekend you will NOT seek out Janey Rotten-Crotch!”
    SPC. Smith – “What about the Females sir?”
    CPT. Ward – ” FEMALES! You will not seek out JOHNNY Rotten-Crotch! He’s as bad as his sister.”

    Paratroopers, if you can’t fry it don’t eat it. .. if it’s not a straw don’t suck it. .. an last but not least if it’s not a lollipop don’t lick it.

    If a tree falls in the forest and no one is around, does it make a sound? Now if that tree had a battle-buddy, we wouldn’t be having this conversation. – Best safety brief line I ever heard.

    If it’s warm, wet and not yours, don’t touch it. I’m certain one of you tards will bag a whale of a woman, it’s statistics. Just remember to wear your Kevlar into battle, I’m not ready to see your demon seed.

    On one particular long weekend instead of putting out your normal everyday safety brief Top gave a class over the functions/uses of an article 15. Before releasing the company he said “should you fuck up, you’ll be standing in front of my desk giving me this class before I take your money, Have a good weekend boys”

    1SG during OBC every Friday that happened to occur on the 1st or 15th of each month (payday). “Alright Lieutenants, it’s Friday and payday! Who comes out on Payday? That’s right the weedman comes out on payday. The weedman sells weed! Stay away from the weedman.

    One of the best quotes in a safety brief was delivered by CPT Greggory Sierra. He was my company commander in 1998. He said:
    “Don’t hit your wife this weekend. Or your kids. Any man that hits his wife or kids is a fucking coward. If you feel the need to hit someone, you call me. You can hit me and we’ll see how that works out for you.”

  13. Paul

    “If it’s warm and wet and doesn’t belong to you…leave it alone.”

    Safety brief before Spring Break to my ROTC company

    A Co,

    Since PT on Friday got cancelled, here’s your safety brief for Spring break.

    All the usual things. We got a long week so make sure to remember to be safe throughout it.
    Wrap it up, especially if you’re going someplace exotic. We don’t need you coming back with some kind of flesh-eating venereal disease that mysteriously gets spread through the entire company or getting a call in a few months that you impregnated a native and the local government is looking for you.
    Along those lines, please abide by the laws of the place that you are going. If we need to start a war with a country to get you back, due to the sequester we won’t even get any extra contracts, so don’t even try it. Also, make sure your chain of command knows where you’re going, and it might seem extreme, but knowing the number for the nearest US embassy may not be a bad idea.
    If you’re staying in the States, the same applies. Wrap it up, don’t do anything illegal. If you’re under 21 don’t drink, and if you’re over 21 drink responsibly. St. Patrick’s day is coming around, so make sure you have a plan. In general, have a plan and a back up plan.
    Most importantly, just don’t be stupid. If it seems like a bad idea, it probably is. Perhaps the best way to be not-stupid is to have a buddy with you. Odds are, if you’re going to do something stupid, they will probably try to talk you out of it.
    A final word of advice: A good friend will bail you out of jail, but a battle-buddy will pull security so you don’t get caught in the first place.
    And on that note, I hope everyone has a fun, safe and relaxing break,
    -Cadet C

    “Safety is paramount!” Has been the battle cry for every briefing I’ve had for several years. You can’t escape this phrase. Like hell it is. If it was we wouldn’t be here. The mission is paramount and everybody knows that it comes first. But everybody that stands up for a briefing always thinks their part of the briefing is the most important thing you will hear that day.

  19. Ben

    May 23, 2013 at 9:04 am

    Men, you can either go the prevention route or you can be dumb and go the treatment route. Doc has a big ass needle. Wrap your damn weapon.

  20. Mack

    May 23, 2013 at 9:04 am

    “If you bought it, don’t eat it,”
    It’s almost 1SG’s catch phrase. Another favorite of mine is “If you’re going to drive drunk, you may as well rip off your dick, slap it on a tree stump and beat it with a tack hammer, because that’s what I’ll do when I find out.”

  21. Mack

    May 23, 2013 at 9:06 am

    If you bought it, don’t eat it.

    Good ‘ol SFC Sterner at Ft. Bragg:

    Hey meatheads, don’t drink and drive. Don’t have unprotected sex. Hell, don’t drink and have sex because you’ll forget and have unprotected sex. Don’t drive and have sex either…. Lets just go ahead and say it… If you’re below the rank of corporal, you’re confined to the barracks until you’re promoted.

    The guy was a comedian, but a great PSG.

  23. Phil

    May 23, 2013 at 9:10 am

    “Listen up, fuckheads, normally I’d give you all a laundry list of shit not to do, in some sort of insane form of hope that, just once, I wouldn’t have to bail any of you out of jail or see you getting your bore punched at the BAS come Monday. But you all have been eating double rations worth of retard sandwiches this week, I’m going to keep it simple- don’t smoke rock, and don’t smoke pole.”

  24. Kevin Carter

    May 23, 2013 at 9:16 am

    Had a 1sgt in Germany who’s whole safety briefing follows:

    Don’t shoot no dope
    Don’t snort no coke
    Don’t smoke no Grass
    If you are gonna love wear a glove!
    Don’t drink and drive!
    Peace out!

    May 23, 2013 at 9:24 am

    @ 82nd. “Men, it’s been 80 days and no deaths! If you die this weekend, don’t let anyone find your body. Why you ask, because if you cause the division to lose another 3 day, I will personally whoop your dead ass then Article 15 you for being stupid”

    One of my first sergeants at Ft. Bragg said this to his formation: “If you decide to ruin your life and date strippers and do cocaine, be a man and do all the blow in the world off the strippers ass. Then call me and I’ll come and end your career.”

    Also from the same guy: “If you pick her up at the bar and she takes you home and there are pictures of scruffy looking guys in far off lands, run away. If you don’t, I will get a call, and then I will have to kill you.”

  34. Josh

    May 23, 2013 at 10:06 am

    When I was training in Bragg my first sergeant said to our formation “If your going to be dumb, date strippers and do cocaine, then go out like a man, and do all the blow in the world off the strippers ass. Then call me, and I’ll bail you out, and ruin your career.”

    For all of you that are Airborne qualified are you going to jump on a red light? No you’re not. Make sure you get consent. And I know all of you have been to the range at some point. If you get a cease fire are you going to keep shooting? No you’re not. You will put your weapon on safe and wait for further commands from the tower. If she says stop you stop and wait for her to tell you to move your selector switch from safe to semi and engage the target.

      PSG holds up a picture..”This is the Brigade Commander’s Daughter. If you see her, LEAVE, or you can imagine what having him for a father-in-law looks like, if he lets you live.”

      Safety Brief in Iraq for folks who wanted to convoy to see Toby Keith,
      “Each of you fill out this form.”
      Dear Mom,
      We got free tickets to see Toby Keith! But I died/was wounded because of a IED while being on the road when I did not have a valid mission. But the Tickets were free.

      P.S. John died/ was wounded too because he had to fill out the crew. He likes rap and did not want to go.

    I heard both of these in my first safety brief in my first unit.

    “Always have a battle buddy to back you up in a bar fight, and I shouldn’t HAVE to say this, but after recent events, I have no choice – a lead pipe you rip off the wall in the alley is NOT your battle.”

    “And stop going home with the same 5 women at the Irish Pub….Mac, I saw you count to five back there.”

    “I am not going to ask you guys not to be stupid, that is an impossibility. I am going to ask you guys to do three things, don’t do anything above a misdemeanor, don’t do anything that will require a doc to be seen by anyone, and don’t get caught doing anything you’re not supposed to. As long as you follow these guidelines we’re good, if not you are mine.” Said this to my Boy Scouts, they think of me two ways, awesome guy to have on your side, crappy guy to have against you. I am a little (read: alot) scary, so it worked.

      It should be noted that whether I have said this at summer camp when they had a lot of extra time to themselves (there were about 5 troops of all female Venture Crews at camp) or just around, there always seemed to be strange rips and stains in their clothing, none white, thank God. When I asked what they were doing when they got those scratches, etc. I heard the words “Uh, well..” and I told them that they were playing capture the flag. They just said yeah to me. I don’t even want to know.

    “Don’t beat your wife, scream at your kids or kick your dog. Beat you neighbors wife, that’s only assault not domestic violence, which apparently in the eyes of the law isn’t as bad. Yell at you neighbors kids because they are probably fucking up your stuff and thinking they are getting away with it. And kick your neighbors dog because more than likely its shitting in your yard too because of that prick neighbors wife.”

    Have a safe weekend. For you single guys, if your plans include going downtown, getting shit-faced, blowing your whole paycheck & banging some skank, let me save you some time. Beat your head against a wall, slam your dick in a door, and give your money to me. You’ll feel the same way come Tuesday morning. If you do choose to go out, remember, pretty women think they’re doing you a favor and should be grateful. Fatties & uglies KNOW you’re doing THEM a favor, and ARE grateful. Either way, wrap that rascal. You married guys, go home, pet your dog, fuck your wife, play with your kids. If you don’t have a dog, pet your neighbor’s dog. Don’t fuck your neighbors wife or play with his kids. Don’t drink & drive. If you do drink & drive, wait until you are on the back nine, you’ll thank me. That is all.

Don’t try and call me to come bail you out for I too will be partaking in the consumption of alcohol and banging my wife.

    CPT. C., At the time was acting battalion commander so he was giving the big brief to the whole battalion females included……” don’t fuck guys Goddammit, or I’ll push your fuckin shit in! Don’t drink and drive or I’ll push your shit in, You do anything fuckin stupid I WILL PUSH YOUR GODDAMN SHIT IN!” After that we break off and he gives our company the safety brief and opens up with ” Good lookin out fuckers, not one of you bastards could have reminded me about the females? Now they think I’m gonna rape ’em in the ass! Well been nice being your CO probably have a new one after that one.”

    If you teach a man to build a fire, he will be warm for a day.
    If you set a man on fire, he will be warm for the rest of his life.
    But don’t fucking set anyone on fire, Rangers.

    Wow, you can really tell the grunts from the POGs, and the older guys from the kinder, gentler military. I hope this will turn into a safety brief video from Rhino.

    1sg Mullins (later SGM Mullins of our sister battalion during the invasion) 172 SIB, Ft. Wainwright, AK:

    “Don’t beat your wife, your kids, or your dog. If you’re gonna do anything, beat your meat.”

    There was more. The guy was hilarious. I have to ask the guys on FB.

    As an officer I can attest, If people would stop doing the bad stuff, I would stop having stand downs to tell them not to do the bad stuff.

    From my platoon sergeant, the 4 rules of leave…

    1. Don’t drink and drive.

    2. Don’t get anyone pregnant.

    3. If you have to fight, win.

    4. Don’t go to jail. Note that in upholding Rule 3, you cannot break Rule 4.

    To my all male, all married OBC platoon: “Remember to only have safe sex…and remember that sex with anyone other than your wife is by definition un-safe and hazardous to your health!”.

    Our PLT THE finished our OCS safety brief with this line every time, “most importantly if I see you before next formation and have to acknowledge I know you then you are dead. The world will not be allowed to know I keep audience with dumbness like yourselves, now go away and if you see me then turn around and walk the other direction.

    Remember men, there are two kinds of women around Ft. Benning: those that were brought here and those who were left here. So if you want to have a one night rodeo make sure you don’t ride that filly bareback.

    Keep in mind the fact that last time we were here BM3 XXX found a Willie on that fillie giving five dollar blow Jobs at the end of the pier.
    And three of you got mayonnaise shots after banging those twins down at the boom boom room.

    In regards to practicing safe sex

    “Remember Airborne, don’t jump without a parachute; and when you do jump, make sure it’s in your own drop zone”

    and the classic 1SG line:
    “If you’re an under age drinker raise your hand”
    Always gets a few of the younger guys to raise their hands
