Panel 1: A soldier sitting in a foxhole in the rain says forlornly, "This place sucks."

Panel 2: Marines are storming a beach under heavy fire. One shouts to the other, "I love how this place sucks!"

Panel 3: A sailor peers through a porthole at the Marines storming the beach and says, "Looks like that place sucks."

Panel 4: Two SEALs are up to their noses in an insect-infested swamp. One says to the other, "This place doesn't suck enough."

Panel 5: An airman sits in an overstuffed easy chair. A fan blows through his hair. He's holding an iced drink in one hand and a television remote in the other. He says, "What? No cable? This place sucks!"
Similar to what you describe:

I've seen it on various miltary orintaeted pages on Facebook over the years. Most recently in the last month, though I don't remember which. Either
"shooter jobs" or "yemx" I tihink. To find it for myself I simply googled "infantry this sucks" and looked at images. It was the fourth hit.

My last deployment in the Air Force was to the United Arab Emirites during the first gulf war. The Air Force issued us field gear and told us that we would be in field conditions. Well, arrived there and found out the base was in fact in the middle of the desert, about an hours drive from the beach front four-star hotel in the heart of downtown they put us up in.

Back then, the Air Force motto was "A great way of life". So true.
