Humor is one of the best and healthiest ways for people to cope with difficult situations, and there might not be anyone with a better understanding of this than active soldiers, many of whom have seen horrors that most of us cannot imagine. This list is for those brilliant troops all over the world who have used humor to lighten their loads.

If you have any photos of soldiers who have goofed off like any of these soldiers have, we'd love to see your photos in our list! And don't forget to upvote your favorites, either!
