AFN commercials are both the BEST and the WORST.

1. "Where are you from?" is the hardest question to answer.


2. You stand up and wait for the Nation Anthem at the movies.


Wait what? Movies don't begin by listening to the Nation Anthem first?

3. The ABCs were totally different for you.


A is for Alpha. B is for Bravo. C is for Charley.

4. Keeping in touch long-distance is basically your b*th.


A 4 month deployment is a BREEZE!

5. You know what MRE's are.


And just thinking about them gives you a stomach ache.

7. The day you got your first ID card was basically Christmas

8. You've spent plenty of Holiday dinners at the mess hall.

Regular stores are the BX, the PX, or the Shopette.

10. You are a BEAST at packing and unpacking.


You have moving down to a science.

11. AFN commercials were both the FUNNIEST and the WORST.

You wouldn't trade your up-bringing for anything!
