Semper Gumby. Excerpt: This is a list of acronyms, expressions,
euphemisms, jargon, military slang, and sayings in common or
formerly common use in the United States Marine Corps. Many of the
words or phrases have varying levels of acceptance among different
units or communities, and some also have varying levels of
appropriateness (usually dependent on how senior the user is in
rank). Many terms also have equivalents among other service
branches that are not acceptable amongst Marines, but are
comparable in meaning. Many acronyms and terms have come into
common use from voice procedure use over communication channels,
translated into the phonetic alphabet, or both. Many are or derive
from nautical terms and other naval terminology. Most vehicles and
aircraft have a formal acronym and/or an informal nickname, those
are detailed in their own articles. The scope of this list is to
include words and phrases that are unique to or predominantly used
by the Marine Corps or the United States Naval Service. For other
military slang lists, see the "See also" section. Items on this
list must be notable, and not terms that you made up or are known
to only a small group. Marine wearing 782 gear ALICE equipment bag
