I mean I'm starting to like the term, the name. I haven't read the book yet.

Just a few that I've heard and used during my service:

BRAVO FOXTROT = buddy f#@ker: someone who isn't to be trusted
TRAP = Tactical Recovery of Aircraft and Personnel
Born Hard = Tough Guy (usually self-proclaimed)
GTG, Good to Go = you're ready OR no problem
Squared Away = same as, Switched On
Mustang Captain = Crossed over from enlisted to officer ranks
Shitbird = OPPOSITE of Switched on!
Silver Bullet = oral temp extracted by corpsman if you fall out of a hump

Hope you all enjoy my .02

All I have to spare and not worth much

I thought the term for that was Blue Falcon? Or is it different depending on the Branch?

Not to put words on NDD's keyboard; gaps or voids, corners cut, whatever. Everything you don't know, miss, or haven't prepared for, is something someone else (enemy or otherwise) can use against you.

Reading this site daily can help prevent that though

Hunh, I took it to mean the gaps between training and techniques. Spend all your time shooting and you shoot well, but get killed cause your gun pukes, your draw gets fouled, you find yourself in a FUT, whatever you hadn't trained gets you killed. Work on shooting and unarmed, seperately (i.e., gun stuff only on the square range and H2h only in the dojo) and die in the transition between the two, that sort of thing.

I can't recall where I previously encountered this expression, but that was the sentiment that I thought was being expressed. Whether this is what Sneaky meant, I dunno.

gaps, void, whatever. The overlooked gap in security is where the BG will bounce up. The pause because someone wasn't ready. The hesitation in a transition. That kind of thing.

Things left undone. People not where they are supposed to be.

Love this stuff.

Heard so many in a lot of years. I didn't see:
Group Therapy = setting the selector switch to full auto

There's many more but I'm getting old and hard to remember when I need one. Blitz

since we're on a roll....

Human Crayon: Rides a motorcyle without protective gear.

Can also be used in reference to anybody that does something with high chances of chaffing or scraping skin without protection. Belaying, Rappelling, Fanning (firing a revolver rapidly), you name it. The "tough" guy who thinks scars are cool.
