Post subject:  Military Terminology

So we hear all this military terminology being tossed around, but do you know what it means? Here's a handy guide.

  • Klick (or click): a kilometre (as in "the camp is 30 klicks from the 'gate")
  • Take point: take position at the front when working as a team
  • Watch our six: keep an eye on the rear of the party
  • SNAFU: situation normal, all fucked up
  • FUBAR: fucked up beyond all recognition
  • FUBAR BUNDY: fucked up beyond all recognition, but unfortunately not dead yet
  • Ass: armoured vehicles (as in "we'll be driving behind a lot of ass today")
  • At ease: relax, as you were
  • BDUs: battle dress uniform - the plain green or blue shirt and pants often seen worn on the base in SG-1.

More to come.
