Captain Fogt is a soldier,  subby, not some weak-ass non-olympic bobsled medalist Marine.  HOOAH?!?!
 
2014-02-23 01:37:16 PM
subby gets a bite right out of the gate.
 
2014-02-23 02:36:30 PM
And he's probably going back to the airport like this:

Done in one.  Army soldiers say "Hooah."  Marines say "Oorah."  (DEVGRU dudes don't say shiat.)
 
2014-02-23 02:37:03 PM
Christ, what an ... oh.
 
2014-02-23 02:37:18 PM
Oh, this should end well for Subby.
 
2014-02-23 02:38:53 PM
Hartmann's gonna kick your ass, Subby.
 
2014-02-23 02:39:38 PM
Do it for the Core!

Subby deserves a gold medal... in the 100 meter troll.
Awesome. Let's make popcorn while the armchair generals pound their chests in indignation.

That's Fogt up.

Tell Me How My Blog Tastes: Captain Fogt is a soldier,  subby, not some weak-ass non-olympic bobsled medalist Marine.  HOOAH?!?!


Came for this, leaving happy. :)

/we are NOT Marines and do NOT ever say OORAH
 
2014-02-23 02:47:07 PM
So subby just called this guy a Marine Core Soldier?


*popcorn*

'Hooah' isn't even really correct, unless one is overemphasizing to be a smartass, which does happen.

FLY NAVY!

So, what's the deal with oorah and hooah?

/I think they both sound stupid, but then again I'm too dumb to understand why every soldier ever is told they've given me freedom and rights that my great-grandparents already had.

People, people that was all wrong! A soldier doesn't say "Oorah!", he says [goes through script] "Hooah!"

WHAT IS YOUR MAJOR MALFUNCTION, FOGT?
 
2014-02-23 03:08:58 PM
must have been an officer.  I can't see the "I need to take a year off to train to get very good at bobsledding, be back later" thing working for the enlisted.
 
2014-02-23 03:14:04 PM
My nephew said "corpse", as in "Marine Corpse".  Then he joined the Marines.  They fixed that.
He's still a farkup.  And sequestration kept him from being a GI-funded college farkup.  But he says "Core" now.

This really IS outstanding work.

Yep, Captain Fogt.

Somehow, I don't see PFC Fogt getting the same arrangement, either.

Probably left "The Core" much stronger if he couldn't even get that right in the beginning. Push, freak!

You must have been in a better unit than I was ;)

Ah good times. I remember not to long ago when Obama repeatedly sung the praises of one of our army "corpse-men."  Nobody bothered to correct him either. I don't how get through life not knowing how to pronounce corpsman or nuclear or jewelry...

He was probably just a better athlete than you were.  I had a friend who was a Lance Corporal in the Marines.  For most of his 3 year enlistment, he just trained and competed as a distance runner.

My Old Man served as an Army medic during the "Korean Conflict" and made damned sure that I learned the different and distinct spellings of "corps" and "corpse."  Marines saved the Army's ass after the Chinese crossed the border.

/and after Truman had declared the "Navy don't need it's own damned Army" in a budget reduction proposal

The official story on "Oorah" is that it's a bastardized version of a naval warning siren's "arrogah," which was often the first warning that the ship's complement of Marines would be needed for combat.

No farking clue on hooah.
 
2014-02-23 05:38:06 PM
I always thought that hooah was actually HUAA, as in heard, understood, and acknowledged. But what do i know, i was only a seaman.

"Word is" hooah is a bastardized version of "Who, us?", which is what the Rangers who were told to scale the cliffs at the invasion of Normandy said.  So every time someone gives a motivational "hooah" it's supposedly a link back to when those Rangers accomplished something that seemed impossible. Of course it could just be a term that assholes use, too.
 
2014-02-23 06:58:44 PM
that's really special, he has a full time job and is also a great athlete.
/deserves "hero" tag.
//was in army, failed to qualify for Olympics.
///let us know when he earns a Bronze Star.
 
2014-02-23 08:22:29 PM
poor guy. too bad for him.

I don't think I've ever heard a non-sarcastic oorah.
 
2014-02-23 11:54:32 PM
When my momma was 42, her bobsled time was faster than you
When my momma was 46, she competed in the Olympics.
When my momma finally got old
she laughed at this guy cause she got gold.

morg: I don't think I've ever heard a non-sarcastic oorah.


Sure you have. By guys who either a) never were in, b) are out now however made their entire identity on their military service... which they left.

Answering hooah was right up there with the soldier's creed in the region of memory I promptly erased with alcohol as soon as possible.
 
2014-02-24 08:15:28 AM
HUA is the army thing...heard, understood, acknowledged
OORAH apparently is a marine thing
HOORAH is airforce
HOOAH is scent of a woman
HEY, SAILOR is navy
 
2014-02-24 10:49:37 AM
Yeah. Most Olympic athletes are not superstars with endorsement deals and financial backers and they tend to go back to work afterward. I'm not one of these reflexively anti-military people or anything but this is kind of a big "so what".
