If you really think about it, troops and veterans have been trained for all the stresses of Black Friday.

You've been trained in making a plan, navigating difficult driving conditions, effective crowd control, and hand-to-hand combat when comes time to secure that one toy your little niece really wanted, and how to properly exfil the f*ck out of that mall before the rent-a-cops show up on Segways.

However, if you're smart enough to avoid all of that BS and do your shopping online, then you've earned these memes.
