Talking Tuesday

I'm an American.

I've lived in the same county of the same state, my entire life!

I've spoken English since I was a toddler, except for my Latin classes in High School.

And then......I was introduced to a whole new language.

Military.

Yep, between my hubster and two sons...I have learned there is a whole different language among those who serve our nation. They speak in acronyms.

Hmmmm...perhaps a warning should have been posted! Oh well.... If this post is more than you can handle today, please come back tomorrow!!! (No disrespect intended to anyone... this is meant to be fun!!!)

What a hoot! This is a "Copy to Word" blog so I can save the acronyms. Maybe I could start a dictionary. I will say that the military has much better acronyms than the health care system, Thanks!
