It really dawned on me recently how many British terms have infiltrated the US military, especially the SOF community…and that I have fallen victim to it as well.
We now find ourselves using terms like ‘kit’…’dodgy’….’cheers’ and ‘mate’.
And the ubiquitous ‘no worries’. Are we trying to emulate the cool kids, or is this a natural occurence?
I’m not really sure what has driven this state of military ontology….but I find it interesting nonetheless.
