30 Army Photos With Hilarious New Captions

The United States Army is the best in the world, so it would only follow that they have some of the best communications specialists and photographers in the world. The official U.S. Army Flickr account is full of stunning images of men and women serving in all types of capacities and situations as soldiers.

But what happens when you take away the context of the photos, especially ones that seem to capture just the right (or wrong) moment? The results are hilarious.

Here’s a list of 30 U.S. Army photos with new captions for your entertainment!
