    That's a funny one. In the Navy, this is sort of close to that except no swimming pool on the flight deck. But we do occasionally do steel beach picnics when underway on a deployment. Not only hotdogs/burgers/chips/soft drinks, but also bands, sports events, Karaoke, etc.

    I served before "hoo-ahh" became the norm for the Army... I personally think it's kind of stupid. It is definitely way, way over used - "Take this box, hoo-ahh? Go into that building, hoo-ahh? Put it in the third room on the left, hoo-aah?"...

    In December, 1977, when I first reported to the Combat Support Company, 1st Battalion, 68th Armor Regiment at Baumholder, FRG,, the Battalion Motto was "In The Lead!" (rhymes with "need"). This was what was supposed to be said whenever exchanging a salute with a 1/68 AR officer, as in, "In The Lead, Sir!!.

    Just before I arrived, apparently a couple of 1/68 AR M-60 tanks had gone for a "swim" while crossing a pontoon bridge over the Rhine during an FTX. The wise-guys in the unit, after I first reported in, tried to convince me that the motto had been "modified' to "In The Rhine, Sir!".

    Us sub sailors say.....well...... I don't need another infraction so I better not say here. My current command has informaly adopted HOOYA as our 'whatever' it's called.

    Well, we have OORah, Rah, Reh, and Yut, especially in the grunts we just kinda go with cave man speak, especially when communicating with Army Rangers, so that they can understand when we tell them it is safe to shoot back. (I'm just kidding OPFOR)

    AF Crew Rest

    Not to derail the thread but it is amazing what can be found on the web. This is from a mission I flew back in 1981 to the “Footprint of Freedom”, in the top left picture I am the short pudgy fellow on the far right with black hair. The luxurious crew rest facilities were 12X60 trailers we had hauled down there.

    The sky cops tend to say "Huah" a lot. We really don't have a rallying cry. A couple of chiefs of staff ago, I think it was Gen Jumper that tried to make "Airpower" a rally cry. It didn't go over so well, either.

    I can't speak for the 101st, but the 82nd still does this.

    Herknav, Ya, I figured the 82nd still did, since they are still truley airborne, rather than air mobile. I was really disappointed when they converted the 101st. Back in the day, we use to tell the 82nd that the "AA" on their patch meant "almost airborne" (instead of All American). The higher ups should have converted them to air mobile and left the 101st airborne. (just kidding--NOT!)

    Didn't have any hooyah hooey in the Army when I was in. We used real words.
    Our Battery motto was 20 Mike Mike
    Our platoon "battle cry" at the NCO academy is unrepeatable in this forum.

    I spend some time on DG in '82, living in the wooden hootches that some brilliant soul had installed window A/C units in, never thinking that the power might be "inadequate." Our rallying cry was . "Get me the **** outta here!"

    I thought "Airborne" yelled Geronimo? You mean that's a big lie?

    During my AF time, it was, "Is it happy hour yet?"
