The Navy has dumped its unpopular recruiting slogan and we came up with some funnier replacements the service definitely won't use.
Gone is the "Global force for good," a five-year-old slogan that hasn't been popular with many sailors, admirals, or the public at large, reported the Navy Times.
To fill the void, The Times created a contest allowing people to submit their slogans. While people submitting to the contest are expected to offer serious entries, the WATM team thought up some lighthearted versions, along with a little help from this Reddit thread and from the S--t My LPO Says Facebook page.
