15. If you ever have it out with an enemy, never leave him “for dead.” Be certain! People have been known to recover from horrible wounds and injuries. A final shot or blow, preferably to the base of the skull, will help you sleep easier, and may prevent an unpleasant surprise at some future date.

Now for the real reason I posted, your avatar friggin rocks!!
Murphy's Laws of Combat
(These sayings were started and collected from the Vietnam Police Action forward)
1. If the enemy is in range, so are you.
2. Incoming fire has the right of way.
3. Don't look conspicuous, it draws fire.
7. Professionals are predictable, it's the amateurs that are dangerous.
12. A "sucking chest wound" is nature's way of telling you to slow down.
14. Never draw fire, it irritates everyone around you.
15. Anything you do can get you shot, including nothing.
]21. Friendly fire isn't.
22. If the sergeant can see you, so can the enemy.
27. Remember, a retreating enemy is probably just falling back and regrouping.
28. If at first you don't succeed call in an air-strike.
34. Whenever you have plenty of ammo, you never miss. Whenever you are low on ammo, you can't hit the broad side of a barn.
51. When you have sufficient supplies & ammo, the enemy takes 2 weeks to attack. When you are low on supplies & ammo the enemy decides to attack that night.
53. A Purple Heart just goes to prove that were you smart enough to think of a plan, stupid enough to try it, and lucky enough to survive.
How about these...
Never pull a gun unless you intend to use it.
Use it about one half second after you pull it.
Know the difference between cover and concealment.
Always seek cover then return fire.
Never peer around a corner, glance.
Never glance around a corner twice.
Never shoot from the same place twice.
Always leave an out.
