This is a proud week for the family of the Mullet Marine as he finally graduated out of Marine Corps Recruit Depot San Diego and is currently making his way to learn to be a motor transport mechanic.

Here's to you, you glorious, mullet-having, Budweiser tank-top-rockin' bad ass. You're going to get hell for a while until you can prove that you're going to be the best damn mechanic the Corps has ever seen. Don't let any of that discourage you. People love that you showed up to San Diego "'Murica AF." Use that to your advantage.

Become the essence of what it means to be a Marine. That also means keeping your nose clean from UCMJ action. You didn't ask for it but you're unfortunately in a position where one slip up will find you in the Marine Corps Times. We all expect you to make mistakes and maybe buy a Mustang at 37% interest rate, but no one wants to see you fall from grace. The military community one day wants you to succeed.

In twenty-some years down the road, we want to read on your Wikipedia (or whatever the future version of Wikipedia is) that Sgt. Maj. of the Marine Corps "Mullet" got his nickname way back in the day he entered the Corps. But until then, BZ, Mullet Marine. BZ.

On that note, now that a meme has graduated boot camp, let's get into some more memes:

1.Damn. How many loot boxes did you have to get to unlock that in Call of Duty?

​(Meme via Valhalla Wear)

2.Still better than the "Army Strong" theme song

(Meme via Coast Guard Memes)

3.The best part about using traffic as an excuse is that you're never technically lying.

(Meme via Lost in the Sauce)

4.Fool me twice... The job market probably wasn't as lucrative after you spent your GI Bill on Underwater Basketweaving

(Meme via Ranger Up)

5.The trick is to watch the armorer inspect other people's weapons. They'll usually just check four or five spots outside of the ordinary. Get those and you're good.

(Meme via Pop Smoke)

6.Ever wonder what the difference between a military spouse and a dependa is? Stuff like this.

(Meme via Shammers United)

7.In a pinch, you can pour Monster Energy into a champagne glass. She won't realize it until she takes a sip.

(Meme via Navy Memes)

8.If it ain't rainin'...

(Meme via US Army WTF Moments)

9.When literally anyone asks me how anything works in the S-6.

It's just like the drop test. I don't know why taking a SINCGARS and dropping it from a few feet above the concrete makes it magically works. It just does.

(Meme via Military World)

10.What about that special kind of hazing where the only physical damage you do to someone is make them drink to the point of liver necrosis? Is that still a thing?

(Meme via Pop Smoke)

11."How dare you betray us like that? We were supposed to get out and open a t-shirt/coffee/military lifestyle site together!"

Speaking of which, did you know that WATM now has a merch section? Wink, wink.

​(Meme via Decelerate Your Life)

12."But that's... It's called a "stealth bomber" because... Ah nevermind. I hate this unit."

(Meme via Ranger Up)

13.Keep on, keeping on, Mullet Marine.

(Meme by WATM)
