Dictionary of “milspeak” by Col. Austin Bay
“Milspeak”–the soldier’s argot that is rich in irony, brutally efficient in conveying the immediacy and dangers of warfare, and can be a shorthand way for separating combat soldiers from fobbits (Derogatory term for soldiers who never leave an FOB -Forward Operating Base)
If you’re being influenced by external factors you can’t control, you might as well embrace the situation. Complaining isn’t going to do any good. That leaves going AWOL as your only alternative.
