Whenever you join a big organization, you're likely to encounter a few acronyms (e.g., If you've ever watched Office Space, remember those TPS reports?). And the U.S military, with more than 2 million servicemembers, is definitely one big organization with acronyms galore.
Some acronyms you're already familiar with, like "snafu." The cleaner way to say this is "situation normal, all fouled up" (with a stronger word for foul). "FUBAR" is also from the military (fouled up beyond all recognition, or repair). There are a few more acronyms that have to do with "foul," but we won't be including them in this quiz.
One thing to note about military acronyms is that the NATO phonetic alphabet is often used to spell out words. With the acronym BF, you would instead say "Bravo Foxtrot." Either way, it means "ready for action." And the NATO phonetic alphabet is a way to sidestep stronger language, such as the now very common acronym from texting and online, WTF, which would be said as Whiskey Tango Foxtrot.
So you probably already know at least three military acronyms! Let's see if you know any more of them. Have fun and good luck with this quiz!
