If you've been in the military for any amount of time, chances are you've been to an awards ceremony, graduation, etc., and heard units yell out "something" to show unit pride and support when a member of their unit is recognized.

While stationed in Okinawa, I was at an annual awards ceremony and when a nominee from the Dental squadron was called, the Commander stood up and yelled out "If you ain't got no teeth!" ... the Dental squadron members responded loudly with "You Suck!" The entire ballroom was cracking up! By far my favorite yet. Here's an example from an AMXS: "If the Eagle's in the Air... we put it there!"

What's the best chant/call out you've heard?

Best -as a currently serving member of the 3rd Infantry Division - ROCK OF THE MARNE! with a response of TOP OF THE ROCK!.

Funniest - and I have to admit I didn't pay much attention to it until the end of basic training where I realized what we were really saying:

Bravo in the front, let me hear you grunt!
Bravo in the rear, let me hear you cheer!
Bravo in the middle, give me just a little!

Of course, these days it would warrant a SHARP complaint.

Thanks for sharing LTC. Both really good and your funny one, just like the Dental Sq's "you suck", probably offensive to some, but very funny to me nonetheless.

In my dad’s day, each unit had its own response to “Rock of the Marne!” The transportation guys had “we hump the rock,” for example, commo was “voice of the rock,” and so on. My dad was in the chemical company. “We smoke the rock!”
