You should read all of Iraq Now today. Just keep scrolling. I especially liked the reference to the Offspring. And my husband said that no one he knows in the military actually uses the word "snafu", despite its frequency in movies.

I remember SNAFU, but really, really rarely. Most popular that I recall were FIGMO and BOHICA.

That was Air Force and (Yowsa) a decade or so ago.

SNAFU was pretty much out of the military lexicon by the time I entered active duty in '77. FUBAR was still used frequently tho', and like Kal said the real popular acronym was FIGMO (polite form: "Finally I Got My Orders", since I try to keep my longshoreman type mouth in check for Sarah's sake)

BOHICA wasn't used when I was in the Air Force. I first recall hearing that acronym when former NJ govenor Jim Florio (house sponser of the Superfund legislation) raised the hell out of assorted taxes ,in order to generate revenue after Tom Kean had performed several sleights of hand to keep the state deficit from appearing as bad as it really was.

Hi Sarah,

hi all, yes, SNAFU was used quite a bit when I was in the active (70's - 90's) Army....but mostly in a goofing around sense....must be that ground pounder mentality....infantry attitude check "this sucks place" :-)
