shut up and color
 v. phr.— «While the Air Force warmly embraced “Integrity First” and “Excellence in All We Do,” many Airmen in 1997 and today believe “Service Before Self” is just the Air Force telling you to “shut up and color” when you get your third deployment in three years, your cross training application gets denied, or you face any one of the other numerous personal hardships all military members face in our service to our nation.» —“Service Before Self: The unpopular core value” by Greg Reese MiG Alley FLyer (Osan Air Base, South Korea) Oct. 6, 2006.
