** I will endeavor to remain close to an American of as high a rank as possible, ''always'' offer to be a liaison officer to said Americans, and offer conservative-sounding advice whenever possible in a heavily-accented English. If no American is around in this sector, chose a Brit. Stay as far away from any French, Italian, or Russians as possible, even if they're on your "side".

** If I'm assigned under a Lt. [[TheNeidermeyer Neidermeyer]] or CaptainQueeg, I will kill myself because they are a karmic black hole whose very existence guarantees we will all die. Alternately, especially if their name actually is Neidermeyer, I will [[AnimalHouse frag]] them at the first opportunity.

** If I am the only woman around, I will make sure to be an ActionGirl. Civilian women in combat zones tend to become [[WarIsHell aesop-related]] collateral damage. I will also, however, invest in military-grade [[VasquezAlwaysDies makeup and hairstyling tools]].

Added DiffLines:

* I will be [[BoisterousBruiser jovial, eager for a fight, and as large and muscular as possible]], which should guarantee that I am either the protagonist or a sufficiently tertiary character that my death would have no dramatic resonance.

Added DiffLines:

** If I have no choice but to join a squad made up primarily of members of another ethnicity, I will make sure it also contains either a [[MentorOccupationalHazard mentor figure]] or a good-natured yet [[RecklessSidekick reckless best friend]] type who will be [[SortingAlgorithmOfMortality even more likely]] to meet an untimely end.


Added DiffLines:

** If I'm low-ranking, but absolutely [[MookFaceTurn have to switch sides]], I will be sure to make my escape with some key piece of intelligence that my superiors have [[BeneathSuspicion left freely available to me]].

* I will stay out of tank crews. Everyone knows tanks are [[InsertGrenadeHere the most vulnerable unit]] on any battlefield.

* If my brother or best friend tells me he's just signed up for the military because there is a war on, even though I may be tempted to join the military myself, I will instead sign up for a stateside job making rifles, bullets, first-aid supplies, or something else that's usually in short supply during a war, but under no circumastances will I sign up on my own. If drafted, I will not request to be transferred to my brother's unit.
** ...Unless, of course, you ARE the [[DeathByOriginStory brother/bestfriend.]] Then just make sure they don't get [[CaptainAmerica super-powers or something]].
