    This survey should tell us whom on the forum is actually a veteran or just a troll trying to make progressive points out of military discussions.

    Take it @ QUIZ: Can You Name All These Military Terms?

    I’m ashamed that I missed 3; Rampart, Kinetic activity, and Defense in depth

    To be honest, a lot of this is more historical than military

    As for the History test @ QUIZ: Can We Guess Your Education Level Based On The History You Know? I got 100%

    They aren't military terms, they are freaking ancient history. Here's a couple of military terms I remember...pogy bait, BAM, gedunk, willie peter, C rats, KaBar, Six by.

    I came across a dictionary one time that went through hundreds of military terms that don't fit the norm.

    Fubar.
    And so many more I can't even begin to remember.
    But, SOME of these are truly military.

    Just to be clear, I am not nor have I ever been in the US armed forces. My career path did and does have me dealing with military and ex military types on a daily basis though.
